Traditional plans virtual classes

Traditional Congregation welcomes the community to several virtual class offerings. To receive a registration link for any of the classes, contact Marian at [email protected] or 314-576-5230. The classes are: 

• Jewish History with Rabbi Seth Gordon, Mondays from 9 to 10 a.m.  

Parashat Ha-Shavu’a: The weekly Torah reading with Rabbi Seth Gordon, Wednesdays from 7 to 8 p.m.  Gordon will look at the weekly Parashah from both the traditional rabbinic and often midrashic points of view as well as from the point of view of modern historians. Recommended:  The new JPS translation, but participants can use any translation.   

• Mitzvah 613 with Rabbi Seth Gordon, Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. More than a “good deed,” as it is popularly known, mitzvah in a deeper and truer sense means, literally, command. Gordon will provide the teachings from Sefer ha-Chinuch (likely 13th century; Barcelona; anonymous). This work numbers the mitzvot as they appear in the Torah, adding rabbinic teachings and the author’s own insights. Recommended: Have a translation of the Torah with you.
