Congregation Adas Emuno has maintained a long tradition of Saturday morning Torah Study sessions, which run from 10 AM to noon. This tradition has expanded into our highly popular Text Study led by Rabbi Barry Schwartz. Come join us for our weekly Saturday morning sessions as we read and discuss the teachings and unfolding story of our people. Our Torah and Test Study sessions are open to all.

In previous years, sessions have been devoted to Torah and the other books of the Jewish Holy Scriptures, the Mishneh Torah of Maimonides, family dynamics in the Torah and Tanach, the history of the Reform movement and Judaism in America, the prophets, turning points in Jewish history, the commentary of Rashi, and the rise and fall of ancient Israel.

Saturday morning study sessions are once more being held in person only in the Adas Emuno Social Hall.

This year we will utilize the acclaimed new volume The JPS Jewish Heritage Torah Commentary.
