Torah Brunch – first Saturday of each month, 10.30 am

On the first Shabbat morning of each month we hold a shortened Shabbat Morning Service.  Following the service everyone is invited to get together for a delicious shared catered bagel brunch and study session about the weekly parasha.

Torah Brunch dates –  2019

Shabbat 6 April with Rabbi James Baaden

Shabbat ha-Chodesh (Ex. 12: 1-11)

Rosh ha Chodesh Nisan (Genesis 1:14-19)

Parashah:  Tazria (Lev. 12:1-8)

Three scrolls!  This is one of those dates when tradition prescribes three readings:  three Torah texts which perfectly capture that fine balance of suffering and joy which seems to be at the heart of Judaism – the honest recognition of the reality of pain plus the equal truth of goodness and hope. Holding fast to this complicated awareness isn’t easy. But it may be the great lesson of our lives. We will be exploring this theme and our three texts at our Torah brunch study session led by Rabbi James Baaden.


Shabbat 4 May

More details coming soon.
