Meet the Midrash with Rabbi Justin Goldstein
Jan 24 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Out of the texts of the Torah, the Rabbis created teachings bringing deeper meanings to the wisdom of the Jewish people known as Midrash. Each week we will explore some of these teachings based on the weekly Torah portion. We will gain not only an understanding of what the Rabbis were teaching, but how and why they were able to offer these teachings.

Wednesdays 12 noon – 1pm
