Sisterhood Presents-”Taste of Torah”

Beth El Sisterhood is excited to announce a new ongoing Sisterhood program called Taste of Torah – 2014/2015. Taste of Torah is a lively, participatory Torah study connecting Torah to our lives. You do not need any prior experience studying Torah or knowledge of Hebrew to participate, just a desire to learn and a willingness to share and listen. We will meet the third Monday each month at 7:30 PM [unless otherwise noted] at different host homes. The study group will be led by Sarah Greenblatt, Sisterhood President, and others.
