Ongoing Jewish study has been central to Jewish life for millennia. The thirst for knowledge has sustained our people through good times and bad, offering a vital counterweight to the preoccupation with material concerns and secular desires, and to the temptation to give in to despair at difficult junctures in life. Torah study is considered to be one of the most important things a Jewish person can do, since it leads to a greater desire to perform good deeds and grow as a human being in all areas of life.
At CSFA, we provide study opportunities designed to appeal as many members of our community as possible:
Rabbi Schwartz teaches three weekly classes focusing on Hebrew language and a revolving topic;
Members lead study of the weekly Torah portion;
And throughout the year we also offer special workshops to familiarize ourselves with the special rituals associated with Jewish holidays;
We also regularly invite scholars and speakers to enlighten us on questions of general interest.
We welcome and encourage you to immerse yourself in any and all of these rich options available to deepen your understanding and attachment to our deep and holy traditions.
