Torah Study

Rabbi Brown meets weekly with an enthusiastic group for Torah study at 9:00 am Saturday mornings. The sessions focus on the parsha for that Shabbat, but can also focus on Haftorah readings.

If you come early, you can nosh with the other members of the Torah Study group. All are welcome.

Shabbat Morning Services

Many participants of Torah Study remain for services. Rabbi Brown leads a brief Shabbat Morning service after Torah Study each Saturday morning — usually starting between 10:15 to 10:30 am. (Check the Calendar for information. This Shabbat Morning service could be ‘reserved’ for Bar/Bat Mitzvah students.)
