Talmud Study Tuesday Evenings
You are invited to enroll in CBST's new 3-evening Talmud Study course on Tuesdays, July 17, 24, and 31, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, with Rabbi Mike Moskowitz. These introductory learning opportunities require no previous experience. Students will build the scaffolding to support the experience of learning Talmud.
Rabbi Mike Moskowitz is CBST's Scholar-in-Residence for Trans & Queer Jewish Studies. This program has been generously underwritten this year by long-time CBST members in memory of their parents who instilled in them the ideals of Tikkun Olam.
