Ongoing Learning Opportunities
Kol Tzedek is a place for people to explore, question, and engage with Torah and Jewish tradition. We believe in Torat Hayyim, a living tradition, which is both relevant and revealing of deeper truths in the world. Throughout Jewish history, people have pored over sacred texts, sought to understand them, struggled with them, and offered their own interpretations and insights. And we are excited to keep this tradition alive. Join us!
All classes are held at Kol Tzedek are wheelchair accessible in our new community space, 707 S 50th St. Please contact us at email@example.com if you have accessibility needs.
Our course fees enable us to pay our teachers and purchase materials, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or the course organizer if you would like to discuss different payments.

Glitter and Gemara: Talmud Study as a Spiritual Practice (SVARA)
Tuesdays, May 7-28, 6:30-9:00pm
SVARA and Kol Tzedek have partnered to create a rigorous and loving encounter with Talmud. Our learning will focus on skill-building (learning how to learn), the radical nature of the Jewish tradition, and the cultivation of Talmud study as a spiritual practice. This four-week bet midrash program is for both learners who have just gotten their alef-bet down as well as those who have years of Talmud experience. It's for anyone who wants to figure out how Judaism fits into their life or wants to try out Talmud as a spiritual practice. $70 for members, $120 for non members.
Last Friday of the month, Oct-May, 9:30-11:30am
The 50+ Havurah invites you to a monthly breakfast and discussion on a topic of spiritual relevance. All are welcome!
