BEGINNERS ADULT PICKLEBALL
BEGINNERS PLUS ADULT PICKLEBALL
BEGINNER MAH JONGG CLASS with Judy Slotsky
A weekly online study group facilitated by Ellie Miller
Thursdays, 10:00 – 11:00 AM on Zoom
RSVP to join the study group and receive the Zoom link.
In this weekly Zoom gathering, we engage in a careful reading of the text. We focus on language and structure along with the stories and values the text imparts, informed by various translations of the Hebrew text and a variety of commentaries, ancient and modern. All are welcome to participate on a drop-in basis – no prior experience is necessary. A text of the Hebrew Bible is required - all translations are appropriate.
To join the study group email list and receive the Zoom link, weekly readings and schedule updates, contact our volunteer Diane Newman.
