Come and join Jews’ Next Dor for some introductory Torah Study at Congregation Beth David on Saturday, February 9th.
After a brief nosh, we will sit down and go over the weeks Torah portion (Mishpatim). No previous knowledge is needed. The only things that you need to bring are an open mind and interest in learning.
If you are interested in reading the portion in advance, you can read the whole thing here: http://www.chabad.org/parshah/torahreading.asp?aid=15564&p=complete
Congregation Beth David has also invited us to join them for Shabbat Morning Services at 9:30am.
“Rabbi Meir (Mai-eer) said: Anyone who engages in Torah study for its own sake (‘lishma’) merits many things. Not only that, but the entire world is worthwhile for him alone. He is called ‘friend’ and ‘beloved,’ he loves G-d, he loves man, he brings joy to G-d, he brings joy to man. It [the Torah] clothes him in humility and fear. It enables him to be righteous, pious, upright, and faithful. It distances him from sin and brings him to merit. [Others] benefit from him advice and wisdom, understanding and strength, as it says, ‘To me is advice and wisdom, I am understanding, and strength is mine’ (Proverbs 8:14). It gives him kingship, dominion and analytical judgment. It reveals to him the secrets of the Torah. He becomes as an increasing stream and an unceasing river. He becomes modest, slow to anger, and forgiving of the wrongs done to him. It makes him great and exalted above all of creation.”
