Jewish Education (Beit Midrash)

Spring 2016 Class

Every Fall and Spring of the year, the Rabbi teaches a class in Jewish history and/or ideas.

This session begins Tuesday, February 16, 2016. Rabbi White will be discussing Pirkei Avot, or Ethics of the Fathers, the entire text of which can be found on pages 602-665 of our prayerbook, Siddur Shim Shalom.

Pirkei Avot is a part of the Mishnah. It is devoted to the ethical and moral statements of the Sages. Because of its subject matter and accessible style, it is one of the most widely quoted books in the Jewish tradition. We are encouraged to study one chapter of Pirkei Avot each Shabbat afternoon in the spring and summer months.

Class is held downstairs at Ohev, starting at 7:00 p.m, on Tuesday evenings. We have lively discussions with a wide range of interests and opinions. Whether it is your first class or your tenth class with the Rabbi, you are sure to get something meaningful out of the time spent with us.

This Spring, we will hold classes on:

  • February 16, 2016
  • February 23, 2016
  • March 1, 2016
  • March 8, 2016
  • March 15, 2016

There is no cost for the class. We appreciate donations.

We will serve dessert, following class. And we appreciate knowing if you plan to come by contacting us online or calling the office at 913-642-6460.
