We offer a wide variety of study groups on Wednesday mornings and evenings, as well as on Shabbat mornings. Topics cover everything from Jewish spirituality and history to Pirkei Avot (one of the best-known and most-cited of Jewish texts) and working your way through the Talmud, one page a day.

Wednesday Morning Study

These Wednesday sessions, from 11 a.m.-noon, are open to members and prospective members, and operate on a drop-in basis — no need to commit to attend every session! These classes meet via Zoom. Rabbis Eric and Jenny Solomon and Amy Ripps alternate weeks and classes. 

  • Amy Ripps will continue teaching a class on American Jewish History. The class picks up in the 1950s and will continue through to the present day.
  • Rabbi Jenny will teach a class on Insights into Jewish Prayers using Well of Living Insight: Comments on the Siddur by Arthur Green. 
  • Rabbi Eric Solomon will teach from Pirkei Avot — a collection of ethical teachings and maxims found in the Mishnah
