“Study to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.”
~2 Timothy 2:15
Join with us each week following our joyous Shabbat service, as we join our minds and hearts together in solidarity with Jews all over the world with the study of the prescribed weekly Torah parashat (portion). Following a tradition dating back to the time of Nehemiah, the foundational principle of our weekly immersion in study and deep discussion is that of ‘line upon line’, and ‘precept upon precept’.
The calendar of Torah readings begins immediately after the Fall High Holy Days on Simchat Torah (Joy of the Torah), where we start reading from Beresheet (Genesis). The cycle of weekly readings is completed one year later with the last portion of Devarim (Deuteronomy).
After each of the Five Books of Moses is finished we joyfully chant: “Chazak, chazak, v’nit’chazek!” “Be strong, be strong, and strengthen one another!”
