Class with Rabbi Fisch 

Shabbos, January 20 at 4:25pm with Rabbi Yaakov Fisch 

There Is Nothing New Under the Sun 
For thousands of years, there were prophets that communicated and relayed stirring messages of intense criticism and comfort. The Jewish people found hope and inspiration in their words. The challenges that our people faced in ancient times are not very different from contemporary challenges. Yes, we may have more amenities and comforts, but the struggle that the human spirit is confronted with and the challenges that Klal Yisroel faced with is more relevant than ever. The prophetic visions that were transcribed were not only for earlier generations but are equally compelling today. Please join Rabbi Yaakov Fisch for a most insightful class on the Book of Ezra which is scheduled 45 minutes before Mincha every Shabbos.

New Mini Series 

Sfashkenaz with Rabbi Yaakov Fisch  January 15 at 7:30pm 

Sephardic Customs. Ashkenazic Rituals. It seems that many of us define ourselves by our Sephardic or Ashkenazic ethnicity. That many times evolves into not only cultural difference but also varying halachic practices. Hence, Sephardim are eating rice on Pesach as Ashkenazim abstain. The recitation of Yizkor is considered sacred in Ashkenazic liturgy and non existent in Sephardic practice. Yet, if we are all descended from the same ancestors and believe in the same Torah -- how are our customs and practices so different? Please join us for this fascinating mini series as we discover the historical and cultural journeys of Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jewry.  January 8, 15, 22 and 29

Women's Class for Advanced Learning

Class with Henny Fisch on Shabbos, January 20 at 10:00am 

Another week. Another weekly portion. The Torah reading cycle begins every year on Simchas Torah and we hear the same stories in the Book of Bereishes. Avraham has his test of the Akeida, Yitzchak has his struggles and Yaakov is running from his life from his brother who wants to kill him. Yet, if we all the know this narrative from past years, how are the messages from the parsha still compelling and relevant? Please join Henny Fisch for a fascinating Parsha discussion and rediscover the deeper messages of the weekly portion that you undoubtedly will find most compelling and relevant.
