Lay-Led Torah Study


Torah Readings

We meet at 9:30 on a Shabbat after a Friday night service, and 9:15 before a Saturday morning service.

We are starting another year of the Torah cycle with the beginning of Sefer Bereishit (the Book of Genesis).  Even though we most often think of the first seven days of creation, the parasha encompasses 10 generations of mankind between Adam and Eve [tr Earth and Life], and Noah and Naamah [tr Favor and Pleasantness]. 

What starts out in magnificence ends with a foreboding of danger to come. Come explore some of the stories hidden between the lines of text in the short time we have...

Parshat Bereishit Genesis 1:1 - 6:8 read it here.

The haftora starts with a summary of creation, hence the link to the parasha. It goes on to say that God may punish Israel, but will never abandon us.

Haftorat Bereishit  Isaiah 42:5 - 43:10 read it here.


Join us for Torah study on the Saturday mornings when we have a service. No experience necessary, just a desire to know more about Jewish scripture. Books are available at the Temple to follow along.

The Torah Study email list gives you a heads-up on the next parashah, and includes some teaser ideas and links to read the Text.

Send me a request at if you would like to be added to it.
