The are many opportunities for members of our community to engage in Torah learning. We have shiurim year-round (see the schedule below), and many educators in the community are available for one-on-one chevrutas. If you're interested in learning b'chevruta with another member of the community, we're happy to make connections. The Minyan also hosts several scholars-in-residence each year. Please sign up for our mailing list to stay informed about these events.

We have two new shiurim beginning in the fall, along with Rabbi Passow's weekly Gemara shiur.

SHIURIM SCHEDULE FOR SUMMER 2019 (please email the teacher to confirm):


Contemporary Jewish Thought, taught by Zoe:

Mondays, 8pm. Located at a private home (email Zoe for location).

Formerly studying the works of Rabbi JB Soloveitchik, this shiur is branching out to other Jewish thinkers. This summer the focus will be on Emmanuel Levinas' "Beyond the Text." All are welcome. No experience or background preparation is required.

The greater Boston Jewish community provides additional Torah study opportunities. Please reach out to Rabbi Passow to learn more.
