Taste of Talmud - four weekly classes beginning February 25

 

PAST Programs

PRAY-GROUND: HOW TO PRAY WELL WITH OTHERS
A class with Rabbi Till that encouraged all to feel more at home in services through an exploration of prayer and the beauty of our prayerbook, Mishkan T'filah

YIDDISH for EVERYONE!
Congregant Esther Brill led an interactive experience wherein participants had fun and came away with well over 100 words & phrases to “adopt” for daily living.  

 

EXPLORE THE SEPHARDIC EXPERIENCE: RITUAL, CULTURE, & CUISINE 
A Sephardic Shabbat
We welcomed Sam Asher, local Cantorial Soloist and Founder of the Rochester Jewish Chorale, who will led us in Sephardic melodies and introduced us to Sephardic Judaism.

Films and Sephardic Snacks
We learned more about Sephardic Life – past and present, and the differences between Sephardic, Mizrahi and Ashkenazi Jews. We showed the feature film “Orange People,” enjoyed food and drink from Sephardic Cuisines, and engaged in lively discussion facilitated by congregant and retired Professor Mel Yessenow.

Sephardic Cooking for Adults & School-Agers
Leah Saada-Sherman, Temple Sinai teacher, and congregant led an inter-generational, hands-on cooking experience, reflecting her Tunisian heritage. Participants enjoyed a light lunch of their own tasty creations and took home a new recipe or two!
