Women's Torah Study Group

The monthly meeting of Temple Chai's Women's Torah Study group, which started in 2007, begins its 2015-16 season on Thursday, October 1 at 7:00 PM at its new location at 2121 Lockhill Selma (at the northwest corner of Military Highway).  The year will be devoted to examining the biblical depiction of women in Ruth, Esther, and the Song of Songs.  The group will meet the first Thursday of each month, through May 2016, at Temple Chai.


The Jewish Publication Society's newest paperback edition of "The Five Megilloth and Jonah" which includes both English and Hebrew, will be the core text for the class.  Supplementary readings and information will be provided.  The class is open to all women in the community; it has studied parashot, contemporary midrashim, and Talmud tractates in the past.
