Also: Lunch and Learn at the Alliance JCC
During your lunch break, why not feed your soul as well as your body? Take some time out of a busy workday to study a bit of Torah over lunch. We take one hour to explore relevant Jewish topics using ancient wisdom to guide us in a modern society. Most sessions will be connected with the weekly portion or time of year. Join us for a lively discussion led by Rabbi Naftali Karp. This is a brown bag lunch program. Ages: 21+
(On the weeks that there is Chai mitzvah class, the lunch and learn class will be the Chai Mitzvah topic of that week)
