Torah Study Summer 5781



Meets on

Wednesdays at 5:30pm PT/8:30pm ET

About the Class

Torah Study is our foundational course led by Aki Yonekawa. Take this opportunity to learn, refresh, and deepen the skills of Torah study that will guide you in this class and beyond. Do it one parsha/Torah portion at a time.

Each class is meant for all levels of learners and thrives when we each bring our own unique experiences and voice to the zoom classroom. In partnered learning, you and one or two partners will dive into a piece of text, think about it, ask questions about it, and learn from one another. After hevruta/paired learning, we’ll come back together as a collective and have a lively, generative group discussion where we’ll find even more ways to connect with one another and the text.

Give yourself the gift of learning not only with an incredible community, but also in the ancient learning cycle of our people. This kind of learning only gets better with practice, and we’ve created this space exactly for this purpose.
