Biblical Breakthroughs @ Southwest Torah Institute
Dec 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Get a “life lift” every Friday! Join Rabbi Becker for stimulating and provocative discussions based on the Torah portion, the Talmud and commentaries. Each week participants together will “plunge” into the sacred texts leading to challenging questions and healthy debate. In our pursuit of truth our thoughts crystallize and we emerge each week with “breakthrough” lessons that reshape our values, enhance our character and bring refreshing new meaning to our lives.

Contact Rabbi Becker at 520-747-7780 for more information. The program is free and open to all men and women in the Tucson Jewish community.

Targum Shlishi with Special Guest at CAI @ Congregation Anshei Israel
Dec 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Targum Shlishi with Special Guest at CAI @ Congregation Anshei Israel | Tucson | Arizona | United States

We are taught to read the Torah Portion of the week, each week, twice: In/From the Torah text (Shnayim Mikra), and again in translation (Targum Shlishi) to ensure that we understand both the form and the function of Torah – what it teaches, and how it can be applied.

Following the Kiddush, Rotem Rapaport, one of our Shinshiniot (young Israelis doing a year of service here in Tucson on behalf of Israel through the Jewish Federation) will share her experience growing up living half a mile from Gaza on kibbutz Netiv Ha’asarah, the closest Jewish community to the Gaza border.
