Adult Home Bible Study
Sundays, once a month
Rabbi Robert Alpert
A Torah study session held in the homes of congregants. For further information please contact Doris Grossmann, (phone number available in the Har Zion office).
Hebrew Language Using the Prayer Book as Text
Mondays, 7:00 - 8:00 PM
We will use the words of the prayers to teach the Hebrew language, teaching students to recognize prefixes, suffixes, roots and parts of speech.
Participants will increase their understanding of the prayers as they learn to analyze the language.
Wednesdays, 7:00 AM
“TISCH” stands for “Torah, Interaction, Study and CHevrayah (fellowship).” Come for morning
minyan, then stay for breakfast and a brief study session. Call the synagogue office to arrange to sponsor TISCH in honor of a birthday, yahrzeit or other special event.
Thursdays, 10:00 - 11:00 AM
The Jewish community worldwide reads the same scriptural selection each week. A person can walk into any synagogue in the world and know exactly what will be read from the Torah that week.
Together we will study the weekly selection to gain greater insight into our own lives. You will also get an insider’s view into the topic for the sermon that week. Come and be an “insider.”
Men's Club Minyannaires
Fridays, 7:00 AM
Join us for minyan followed by breakfast and study of modern issues and what Judaism has to say about the subject. You’ll be in by 7:00 AM and out by 8:00 AM.
