Saturday morning, Feb. 11, at 11 a.m., all are invited to Torah study, which is divided into a two topics of discussion: first, a short presentation of the Torah portion of the week: Yitro, Exodus 18:1-20:23. The Children of Israel are in the Sinai Desert, after fleeing bondage in Egypt. Moses prepares the people, camped at Mt. Sinai, for receiving the Ten Commandments, which become the foundation on which Israel is to build a life of justice and holiness.

The second focus of our study is on the later books of the Hebrew Bible. This week’s focus is on the story of Samuel the Prophet. Aspects of archeology, ancient literature, and psychological insights enhance our study and discussion.  Potluck dairy/vegetarian luncheon follows.
