Wednesdays, 11:00am

December 1st, 8th, 15th

January 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th

When we say, “the rabbis” of the Talmud, who are we talking about? What stories do we tell about them and what can we learn from them? How does a religious leader’s personality drive or hinder their impact in the world?


Study together with your Beth El and Chisuk Emuna community, led by Rabbi Ron Muroff and Rabbi Ariana Capptauber. This course was designed by Rabbi Tali Adler, a graduate of Yeshivat Maharat and a faculty member at Hadar.

On Zoom, link provided upon RSVP to Patty Brown patty@bethelhbg.org or call 717-232-0556 for more information.

Kabbalat Shabbat is a lovely and relatively short service that ushers in Shabbat on Friday evening. We will explore and learn a variety of tunes during the six Sunday one hour sessions. Our Gesher students are also learning the Kabbalat Shabbat service under the guidance of Mandy Cheskis and our talented Gesher faculty. Our hope is that over time more congregants, both young and young-at-heart, will feel comfortable leading and participating in this beautiful and meaningful service. To assist participants, we will be taping and posting the service on Chisuk Emuna's webpage to help reinforce what participants learn in class.

RSVP to Susan Sussman at info@chisukemuna.org or 717-232-4851.
