Tauber Beit Midrash
Free, Weekly Sunday morning study at the Temple 9:30 – 10:30 am
Led by Rabbis Lawrence Kushner, Jane Litman and Jonathan Singer with special guest speakers and presenters inserted throughout the year.
In Hebrew, “Beit” means house and the word “Midrash” comes from the root “to seek” or “to investigate.” A Beit Midrash is a house of study. Each Sunday, when religious school is in session, the Tauber Beit Midrash will offer an hour of study dealing with a specific topic or holiday. Using Talmud, Gemara or Zohar, our teachers will offer insight, discussion questions and food for thought.
