Community Torah Study

Discuss Torah at Beit Ahavah on the first Monday of the month* 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Join members of the Beit Ahavah community for an informal discussion of that week’s Torah portion (Parsha), a holiday, or other texts. No experience with Hebrew or formal Torah study is required, just bring your questions and opinions. Discussions are casual (often irreverent) and all perspectives are welcome. Each study begins with a “Torah for Beginners” section to provide basic tips and suggestions for those just starting out.

If you ever get confused, inspired, or annoyed when you hear the stories that form the basis for Jewish traditions, join us and help us wrestle meaning from these words.

All sessions are held at 130 Pine St. Florence, MA  on the first Monday of the month, 7:00-8:30 p.m. (*unless otherwise noted.)
