Torah of Our World: Shemot
EDCJCC Polinger Meeting Room

In this six-week series, we will examine each of the five books of the Torah - and the holiday of Purim - with an eye toward literary structure, broad themes, and historical context. The course will draw upon the daily reflections of contributors to 929 English, a project dedicated to creating a global Jewish conversation anchored in Tanakh and dedicated to issues that unite and divide us.
