Psalms Study with Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum
Tuesdays, January 15, 22, and 29, 6:30pm to 7:45pm, 130 West 30th Street
As a CBST community, we are reciting the entire book of 150 psalms each day for our Psalms/Tehilim Project. Take this unique opportunity to study with Senior Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum and explore the poetry, formation, and interpretation of the psalms. Register.

Weekly Torah/Talmud Study

Thursdays, beginning January 10, 6:30pm, 130 West 30th Street
Rabbi Mike Moskowitz leads this text-based, “Mishmar,” study in two parts. In the first hour, trans and non-binary participants are invited to study Parashat Hashavua (the weekly Torah portion). Everyone of every gender identity is welcome to the second hour in which we will study Talmud. All backgrounds and skill levels are welcome to attend, including beginners, and there are no pre-requisite skills required. Register.

Classes run regularly every Thursday beginning January 10. Parashat Hashavua (weekly Torah portion) study for trans and non-binary participants begins at 6:30pm. Talmud study open to everyone of every gender identity begins at 7:45pm.

These study sessions are free of charge and contributions will benefit Trans Jews Are Here programming. CBST recommends regular attendance especially for Talmud study, but drop-ins are always welcome.

Please note: the January 17th class will begin earlier at 6:00 PM with Parashat Hashavua (weekly Torah portion) study for trans and non-binary participants. Then at 7:00 PM, instead of Talmud study, all are welcome to attend the Martin Luther King Jr. Day LGBTQ Multi-faith Celebration upstairs in the sanctuary.
