Join our Sonoma County Rabbis for a 14-session exploration of Jewish life, beliefs and practice. Sponsored by the Jewish Community Center of Sonoma County. Held at Ner Shalom.
People of the Book.
We will explore the Hebrew Bible, and get an overview of other classic Jewish texts. What kind of book is the Hebrew Bible? What do we mean by “Torah”? And is there a common thread that holds these texts together?
Taught by Rabbi Mordecai Miller, Congregation Beth Ami.
