December Services and Events

Sunday Afternoon December 11 Adult Learning: Season of Light

Season of Light:  As we head into the dark time of the year and our tradition’s Festival of Lights, we will do some Talmud study that pits Hillel and Shammai against each other (as usual!) with respect to the right way to light Chanukah candles.  The study will bring up larger questions about disagreements, traditions, and finding our way with multiple, competing instructions. Join us at 1:30 PM, Sunday afternoon December 11, either in person or on Zoom, for a discussion led by Hebrew College Rabbinic Intern Naomi Gurt Lind. If you wish to participate and are not a Betenu member, please contact the Betenu office.
