Student Rabbi Caitlin Brazner will lead a virtual Torah study from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, 2020.
Caitlin says, “During our first hour this weekend, we will be looking at our Torah portion (Parashat Vayeshev), which sets the stage for Joseph and his life in Egypt.
“In the second hour, we will be reviewing a collection of texts from Talmud and the Apocrypha (Maccabees) to explore the Hanukkah story and see what’s really in our canon about this holiday.”
