Torah and Talmud Study

Torah Study – Shabbat (Saturday) Mornings at 9:00am

Every week of the year, over 30 congregants gather with one of our clergy for a lively Torah related discussion. We explore interpretations offered by our sages, share our own, and reflect on ways that the text touches upon our lives today. Bagels, coffee, and tea are served. Torah study ends in time for those wishing to attend Shabbat Morning Services.   We meet in Room 317.

Each week a member volunteers to bring bagels.  

Also, each week, a member volunteers to do a summary/commentary on the weekly Torah Portion. 


Talmud Study – Monday Evenings at 7:15pm 

The Talmud is the foundation of Rabbinic Judaism, and its origins as the Oral Law go back to the time when the Second Temple stood in Jerusalem. The Talmud was codified in written form in the 6th century CE, and has been the object of study and commentary ever since. Temple Sinai's Talmud Study group, which has been ongoing since the late 1990's, meets every week in a member's home. We study slowly, and no Hebrew is required. Please call Fred Isaac at (510) 525-8449 for more information.
