Theology Class
Theology class meets every Wednesday morning during the academic year we will immerse ourselves in a new book entitled 'Thinking About God" and can be bought on Amazon.com.  This book will help us in our Jewish journeys to develop our own theologies and point us in directions that we may never have thought of.  Everyone is most welcome.
Join us each Shabbat morning (Saturday) for Torah study of the portion-of-the-week (or pretty close to it!!) at 10 AM in the Zoom Room 589-198-4173 p/w 181818. No Hebrew knowledge is required and everyone in the class is a Torah scholar – even you! Rabbi Stanway will send you the text so there is nothing to buy. The conversations and observations are always engaging. The class is fun and everyone is most welcome.
