EHRS Day Of Learning - Jews are the 'People of the book'- but do we all know how to open it?
Sunday 1 December, 9:30-12:30 at EHRS
Come and join our Rabbis and guests on a day of learning dedicated to the books that have shaped Judaism and the Jewish people from our earliest times right up to today. Our rabbis will help you to understand the beauty and teachings of the major classical Jewish texts from Torah to Talmud to the mystical Zohar. Our guest authors will share the Jewish meaning of their books for children and adults with a chance to take home signed copies. There will also be an opportunity to go beyond the book to see what is happening online and on your mobile to bring Jewish learning direct to you.
Workshops suitable for everyone aged 4 to 100! Creche available & refreshments. Adults £5, Concessions £3 (18-36 and over 65), under 18 Free. See below for more information and to book your place.
