Please join RIMON for a weekly Torah study class guided by the commentaries of the Hasidic Masters. The class will be taught by Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman, MSW.
Specific class dates are as follows: : 10/22, 10/29, 11/5, 11/12, 11/19, 12/3, 12/10, 12/17.

Beginning, “In the Beginning,” with Genesis, Class members are asked to read each parasha (weekly Torah portion) in English prior to the class and with that basic grounding are invited to engage with Hasidic masters of Jewish mysticism from the 18th through the early 20th centuries. These rabbis are a flowering of the same living tree/eitz chayim that begins with Torah and Tanakh, proceeds through midrashic literature and incorporates the teachings of kabbalah- Jewish mysticism. Each generation synthesizes the learning of previous generations, expanding the tree of living Torah and connecting them in an unbroken chain of learning. Rimon’s classes provide an opportunity to enter into this chain of revelation and explore meaning relevant to contemporary life.

Each class stands on its own and does not require prior attendance. All are welcome to attend any or all of these classes.

The fee for the series is $160 or participants may attend individual classes for $25/session. Reduced fee is available upon request. In the event that participants who have registered for the full series must miss certain classes, recordings will be made available.
