Join Rabbi Josh for TV and Torah on Wednesday nights. We'll be watching the hit Israeli TV show SRUGIM; the Israeli version of FRIENDS. Unlike in FRIENDS, the characters in SRUGIM need to navigate relationships and family dynamics within the bounds of Halacha, traditional Jewish law, and we will explore their challenges and successes in balancing their religious and personal lives.
We will start with a min-class to prepare for that day's episode with Rabbi Josh at 7:00 PM, before breaking to watch the episode. Afterward, we'll regather for a brief discussion of the episode. Beginning at 8:15 PM those who would like to stick around, we will have a halachic discussion concerning the episode with Rabbi Josh, Rabbi Rebecca Schatz of Temple Beth El in Los Angeles and members of her congregation. No class on November 25 and December 16.
ZOOM link will be provided upon request.
