Prophets completion May 7 2016 r600

On Saturday May 7 we finished the Psalms! After 24 monthly sessions with coffee, bagels, cream cheese, herring, egg salad, fresh veggies, lox, babka, ice cream, and other goodies, we concluded this round of Psalms study. This followed 9 1/2 years working on the Prophets. Next up: the book of Proverbs, which should take about a year, followed by Job for another year, then we'll knock off the Five Megillot (Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther) which combined will take a less than year


We meet 9:30 AM to about noon once a month to study the Sacred Texts (usually the first Saturday of each month; but is subject to change).  Bagels, coffee, and other goodies are provided by members of the group on a "pot-luck" basis.  As always, everyone is welcome to attend these sessions, and dozens of people regularly join the circle for fascinating discussions and delicious food. 

The other Saturday mornings of each month we study the current weeks' Torah text from 9:30 AM to about 11 AM .  All are always welcome.BYOB or use one of B'nai Sholom's Bibles.
