    Tanach Chabura- Game of Thrones, The Prequel
    Thursday, Apr 2nd 11:00a to 12:00p
    Divided kingdoms. Blood feuds. The pursuit of power at all costs. There’s no need for an HBO subscription when you have access to a Tanach! Over the coming months, we will be learning through the Book of Kings, a book filled with palace intrigue as our nation seeks to solidify a successful monarchy. Join us as we follow the twists and turns in the story of the Israelite monarchy.

    Taste of Talmud with Rabbi Josh
    Thursday, Apr 2nd 4:00p to 5:00p
    How do we maintain our faith in a light at the end of the tunnel when we don't know how long the tunnel runs? This question is not new in our moment; it's one that has been grappled with in almost every generation of our people's history. This question is the unstated backdrop to the first chapter of the first tractate of the Talmud, the central formative text which created the Rabbinic Judaism that we practice today. Join Rabbi Josh​ for a daily discussion of the first chapter of Masechet Brachot. Through learning this text together, we will explore how the early rabbis maintained their faith in the future during some of the darkest days in our people's history, and will consider how their theological reflections resonate in ours. No prior background in Jewish learning of any kind required. This learning group will be meeting exclusively via Zoom (or phone), Monday-Thursday from 4:00-5:00 pm.

    Pesach's Coming: HELP
    Thursday, Apr 2nd 7:00p to 8:00p
    Pesach is right around the corner, and for most of us it is going to look quite different this year than usual. I know there are many questions and topics to discuss relating to the unusual set of circumstances surrounding this year’s Pesach. Rather than being structured as a class, this block will be an opportunity to explore and discuss some of the challenges that this Pesach brings, and to workshop solutions to some of these challenges. If you have questions in advance of the classes, please send them to rabbijosh@bethisraelnola.com. Thursday, April 2nd Preparing our Houses We have included in this newsletter a guide for Pesach cleaning from the Beltway Vaad in the DC area which has been sent out by the International Rabbinic Fellowship as a guide for use in synagogues around the US. This session will be spent delving into this guide, exploring what is, and what isn’t actually required to prepare our houses for Pesach. Hopefully we will all find that we don’t need to go as crazy with cleaning as we think!
