Clergy Learning Series

Join the Temple Sinai Clergy as they rotate facilitation of a class on the most compelling texts of Jewish tradition. Each session will be led by a different member of the clergy team and will feature a text as well as some background on what makes it so meaningful to us today. For convenience, each class will be offered twice: once in the evening and then the class will then be repeated during the day. Choose either session to get the same great lesson.
