Thursday, January 28th, 2021 (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM)

Explore the mitzvot (commandments) from the Torah with Rabbi Feivel. In this once/week series, we’ll systematically work our way through the Torah, stopping at the commandments contained within.

Along our journey, we will continually ask the question - is this commandment still relevant for us today?
