Torah Study


Our Sabbath morning Torah Study explores the weekly parashah from a variety of perspectives, including traditional, progressive, mystical and literary.




Ever wondered...

What happened “In the beginning”? How we ended up being slaves? What’s the deal with sacrifice (and why we stopped)? Just what we’re counting in the Book of Numbers? If the Ten Commandments really does appear twice in the Torah?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or if you have questions of your own), then join us at Temple Emanu-El’s weekly Torah Study.



Please note: The last scheduled session of our Torah study group for the 2016-2017 program year will be Saturday, May 20. Many thanks to Rabbinic Intern Tarlan Rabizadeh for guiding us in discussion this year! Torah study will resume regularly on September 9.
All are welcome to attend.



Through engaging, thoughtful conversation and lively debate, we plumb the depths of our most important sacred text and discover the personalities, challenges and themes in the narrative that still affect our lives today.

Torah Study meets each Saturday, prior to our worship service, from 9:15 AM to 10:15 AM. No previous knowledge is required. Come regularly, or drop in when you can. Coffee and bagels are provided; you contribute your questions and ideas.

There is no better way to start off your Sabbath morning than with a taste of Torah.
We hope to see you there! (Enter at the Marvin and Elisabeth Cassell Community House,
One East 65th Street.)
