Dear Friend,

As we approach the Jewish New Year, The Shul is proud to present our High Holidays Torah Studies educational series.

At The Shul we know that the richness of our tradition and the wisdom it offers can be exciting, even thrilling. In preparation for the upcoming High Holidays, we invite you to join us for a series of lectures that probe the depths of contemporary Torah thought, with a special focus on issues surrounding spirituality and the human psyche. Each of the three classes offers meaningful and timely lessons, and fascinating discussion. Our classes bring you the tradition of classical Jewish learning in a series of inspiring and engaging classes.

You will walk away surprised, inspired, and knowing more about who we are as Jews, and who you are as an individual. If you find something that may be of interest to your friends, please encourage them to come along.

Shalom,
Rabbi Cheski Edelman
