This American Shabbat is based on National Public Radio's This American Life. But rather than Ira Glass and a team of writers discussing a given issue, three members of the community each offer their own understandings of the week's Torah portion. These members will have studied the Parashat with Rabbi Minkus. Each will craft a D'var Torah that is shaped and informed by those discussions. The program challenges the participants, and all of us, to understand how our personal exploration of Judaism relates to the Torah.
Join us for inspiring words of Torah and the company of old and new friends.
