Join us as we follow the evolution of Jewish Law from the Torah (Five Books of Moses) through centuries of Rabbinic Legal texts to its understanding and implementation today. We will also touch on how the different denominations of Judaism differ in their approaches and relationships to law. Join us for some lively and enlightening text study and discussions as we look at topics such as “Kosher”, Shabbat, egalitarianism, and more!
