Take Your Tanach Tuesday Evening — The Book of Ezekiel

The Book of Ezekiel is one of the most mysterious but essential books of the Tanakh. Who was Ezekiel? When was he prophesying? Were his prophecies meant for his time or the distant future? In this TYT series, we will take an in-depth look at the life, times and ageless message of the Prophet Ezekiel in a way which will make his contribution to Jewish texts, history and destiny truly come to life! A priest stuck in exile, dreaming of the perfect Temple in a perfect homeland – a man pinning for spiritual life, but only experiencing physical privation - what is his message really all about? God asked Ezekiel to do many strange things – things even contrary to Jewish law! Were they literally true, or were they merely metaphorical? Come and join the CTI Tuesday evening Take Your Tanakh class, as together, we learn about the Prophet Ezekiel!  This class meets each Tuesday evening, except on Jewish holidays, at 7:00 PM.

Take Your Tanach Wednesday Morning — The Book of Samuel I

Examine the life, times and trials of the Prophet Samuel, the last Judge of Israel. The story of Samuel begins the saga of Israel’s history, its kings, wars, and promises. First Samuel introduces us to a large swath of Jewish history, ranging from King Saul and King David to questions of military ethics, religious boundaries, and moral questions. The Prophet Samuel may be best known for anointing David, but his legacy and story are essential for every Jew to learn because with Samuel the story of the Jewish people’s redemption begins!  This class meets each Wednesday morning, except on Jewish holidays, at 8:15 AM.

Mishne Torah k'Seder Friday Mornings

Come and join Rabbi Dan on Friday mornings, except on Jewish holidays, at 8:15 AM for an in-depth exploration of the Rambam's Mishne Torah. This class will go through the Rambam's classic work on halakha (Jewish law), in a way which both engages and transforms the reader on a spiritual and intellectual level. Why did the Rambam write the Mishne Torah? What was he trying to achieve? How does the Rambam's interpretation of Jewish law, theology, history, and culture differ from his rabbinic contemporaries who also wrote comprehensive Jewish legal works? What were some of the great disputes this work sparked, and why? You don't want to miss out on this great opportunity to learn what the Mishne Torah is all about.
