Shabbat Morning Torah Study with Rabbi David Thomas

Second Saturday of the month

9:00-10:15 am

Sept 14, Oct 12, Nov 9, Dec 14, Jan 11, Feb 8, March 14, April 11, May 9

While Torah is at the very center of who we are as a people, it’s language, content and mysteries often keep us at bay. The Chasidic rebbes had an inspired way of seeing the Torah as alive in a way that urges us to see how it applies to every one of us personally. In these sessions, we will engage deeply with the text, in the context of Shabbat and in a spirit of discovery - “How is the Torah speaking to me personally? What is it trying to teach me about myself, my place in the world and my life in relation to my community?  We will refer to the text in Hebrew, but no previous experience with Torah is necessary. 

David Thomas recently retired from his role as senior rabbi at Congregation Beth El in Sudbury, MA after 17 years.  Rabbi Thomas launched the award-winning MetroWest Free Medical Program and is known for his social action and racial justice initiatives in his native North Carolina as well as leading his congregation to a vote declaring a Sanctuary in Support of Immigrants in 2017.

Rabbi Thomas is a Senior Rabbinic Fellow of the Shalom Hartman Institute and has been a board member for the CCAR. David recently moved to Minneapolis to spend more time with his grandchildren.
