ScholarStream and Post Discussion with Rabbi Spitzer

ScholarStream is an exceptional program that four institutions of the Conservative/Masorti Movement — the Rabbinical Assembly, USCJ, The Jewish Theological Seminary, and the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies — have created as a joint initiative to offer high-quality adult education opportunities. It is a chance for each one of us to learn from some of the world’s leading scholars and engage deeply with our texts and traditions. Temple Israel is a ScholarStream sponsor, which means that our members can take all courses at no charge.
It is an unparalleled opportunity.

You can attend on the Wednesday nights they are given, or you can listen to them on your own time; a link to the taped lecture will be sent to registrants.
