Center City Beit Midrash

June 3, 2014 7:00 AM-7:45 AM

Have you ever wanted to explore the foundational texts of the Jewish tradition, but didn't know where to start? Then join with old friends and new for the inaugural season of the non-denominational Center City Beit Midrash! Beginning February 4, all of Center City is invited to be part of an on-going Jewish learning community. Join us every Tuesday morning between 7–7:45 am for breakfast and traditional text study with chevruta (study partners,) led by rotating rabbis from a range of perspectives, including Rabbi Stone, Rabbi Albert Gabbai, Rabbi Joel Seltzer, Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell, and Rabbi Helen Plotkin.

Each rabbi will select a text for a period of four to five weeks' (five meetings) guided study. In this way, participants will be exposed to a variety of texts and ideas. Some knowledge of Hebrew is recommended, but texts will be provided both in the original and in English translation.

Dates: The Beit Midrash will meet for 45 minutes every Tuesday morning at 7 am between February 4–June 17:

• February 4, 11, 18, 25

Tot Shabbat: Congregation Beth Israel in Media will open its doors to non-member families with young children on Friday, February 19 for a “Tot Shabbat” combining play time, food, music, and social action.  The free event, from 5:30 to 7:00, is geared to children from infants up to age six along with parents and family members.  The aim is to help families to relax, enjoy the Sabbath, and make connections with each other and the community.   The evening will include toys, crafts, songs, musical instruments, and a service activity on the theme of “little hands can make a big difference”.   Participants will share a casual kid-friendly meal, congregant-led blessings over bread and wine, a brief story, plus cookies and milk.  Children are welcome to attend in pajamas so parents can easily put them to bed after the event. There is no charge but RVSP is requested to ensure there are enough supplies and food for all attendees.  For more information or to register, call the synagogue at 610-566-4645 or visit https://bethisraelmedia.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=1834.
