FREE WEEKLY TORAH STUDY


Join us Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm U.S. Central Time for our free virtual (similar to Zoom) Torah study. ​For each meeting, most people's preparation time is 2+ hours a week. Everyone participates. Please click here to fill out the application.  If your application has been approved, you will be put on our mailing list and receive two weekly emails. One will include the Parshat (Torah Portion) scriptures we will be discussing at the next meeting and a link to the virtual meeting. The other will be an invitation to the meeting. You need to reply with a "yes" or "no" within that email. 
 

Unique Virtual (similar to Zoom) Meeting Format
 

  • Each person chooses five questions to answer from the twenty-six questions listed at the bottom of this page.

  • We do 5 rounds. 

  • In each round, each person shares their answer to one question.

  • Your answer may be very short or up to two minutes long.

  • As you are doing your homework, please make sure that your comment for each answer does not go over two minutes. Write down your answers to read at the meeting.

  • At the meeting, please keep an eye on your timer in order to show consideration to the other participants. If you go over 2 minutes you will be muted.

  • To begin your study, read the 26 questions.

  • Since this is a Jewish bible study, please only quote Messianic Jewish or Traditional Jewish bibles and commentaries. Complete Jewish Bible, Tree of Life Bible, or any other Messianic or Traditional Jewish bible. Some can be found in a free online version, or you can do a search on Google for a chapter and verse with the name of the bible or version (TLV, CJB). For Tanakh, only use JPS.

    When you share your answer, please give the number of the question that you will be sharing.
     

    Please give chapters and verses of all scriptures that you mention.
