The Chevruta Study Group - Will Resume in October
The Chevruta is a small group committed to the intensive study of Jewish texts, philosophy, and history. Books selected by the group for study are read aloud by hte members at each meeting with ample time for discussion. Therefore, each book may require months of study. Our current subject is Jewish Civilization from Muhammed to Spinoza. The current members come from varied backgrounds and levels of Jewish learning. There are no prerequisites for new members other than a devotion to Jewish learning and a commitment to respect the opinions of others in the group. Due to the nature of how the group studies, the size of the group is limited. If you are interested in joining or want more information, please contact Rabbi Yael Rapport at rabbirapport@cbst.org
