Living Room Limmud

Wednesday, May 8 – Meet at 7:45 pm, learning session begins at 8 pm

Living Room Limmud is an exciting new adult learning initiative. It is a once-a-month weekday evening Jewish learning group, sponsored by Congregation Agudas Achim. Rather than meet at the synagogue, we gather in different people’s homes for informal discussion and text study, facilitated by a different lay leader each time. This will provide opportunities for learning that is high quality, relaxed and casual.

The next gathering will be Wednesday, May 8th, 7:45 – 9:00 pm, in the home of Isaac & Rayna Weiner. We’ll meet at 7:45 and begin the learning session at 8:00. We are thrilled to have Dr. Susan Hodge present The Book of Ruth in a Sea of Stories.

If you are interested in leading or hosting a future Living Room Limmud session, please let Isaac know ( Rabbi Levine ( is available to consult on choice of topics and texts.
