No previous learning experience is required. All are welcome. 

The class will take place live online through the zoom portal, and the weekly zoom link will be sent out with the week's handouts before each class.

Join us each week for a chance to step away from the busyness of our lives and explore the questions and ideas that animate our lives. Each week, we will open up one idea from the weekly Torah portion and use it as a tool to examine who we are, where we stand, and where we hope to be going.

with Orot's Jane Shapiro

The Torah is framed as a series of narratives, songs, and laws, that revolve around relationships. How does the Torah understand what a relationship is? Who is involved in the building of a relationship? What happens when they are disrupted? Who can be in a relationship? How does all of it relate to the larger messages of the Torah and even more, how do we take the Torah in and make it part of our own lived experience?

As in all Kavannah classes, you do not need to know Hebrew or have prior background to join in - just a willingness to share your point of view, open up to new ideas and most of all to allow yourself the luxury of an hour away from your busy life and into the refuge of deeper thought and feeling. Having your own Tanach text that you are willing to write in is strongly encouraged.

Bring your lunch to eat, followed by learning.
