Parashat Vayeira tells the triumphant yet tragic tale of Avraham Avinu’s tenth and final test, the Binding of Isaac (Akeidat Yitzchak). Until, at the last moment, while the sword was already in the air, an Angel of G-d intervened to stop the drama and pointed to a ram, to be substituted for Yitzchak (Bereshit 22:1-19). The merits of this episode have been referred to throughout Jewish history. The only question is why?? Come study Akeidat Yitzchak with a master teacher and see the story as you’ve never seen it before.

The Sefer ha-Chinuch (ספר החינוך Hebrew: "Book of Education"), often simply "the Chinuch" is a work which systematically discusses the 613 commandments of the Torah. It was published anonymously in 13th century Spain. The work's enumeration of the commandments (Hebrew: mitzvot; sing. mitzvah) is based upon Maimonides' system of counting as per his Sefer Hamitzvot; each is listed according to its appearance in the weekly Torah portion and the work is structured correspondingly.

A common factor amongst all religions is the importance placed on life cycle events. This class explores Judaism, Halacha and Jewish culture through the lens of the human life-cycle. The goal of the class is to see Jewish religion beyond text, to see it as intimately tied to lives of Jews themselves. Through examination of life events like the birth of a baby, a bris and raising children we will continue to do what generations of Jews have done before us - giving life, sustaining our beliefs, celebrating who we are and reminding us that each person's life is precious. At each session of this popular series we will examine the etiology and contemporary application of many of today’s pressing Halachic dilemmas. Source sheets will be provided.
