Now in its ninth year, Lunch and Learn continues its investigation of halakha, or the tradition of Jewish law. Over the past few years, we have investigated a variety of topics: holiday observance and perspectives on Shabbat, divorce, suicide, death and mourning, purity and impurity, kitniyot, the giving of tzedaka, and abortion.
As Lunch and Learn transitioned to the online format during the pandemic, it expanded significantly, from a weekly program to a gathering that as a rule takes place every weekday.
On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, Rabbi Weiner explores the Tractate Berakhotof the Babylonian Talmud.On Wednesdays, Amy Mittelman continues to lead discussions of racism in our society.
The conversations are intellectually stimulating and emotionally expansive, giving participants the opportunity to deepen their traditional Jewish knowledge and process the thoughts and feelings that the material brings to light. Please be assured that if you have not already become a part of this meaningful, oddly exhilarating, and even fun exploration, it is never too late.
