*Note – The Jewish customs study is held as a discussion format in which everyone shares their comments and questions about the week’s reading. Comments will include your responses to the material, such as, how is it helpful—or not; is it insightful; how does it relate to your relationship with God, etc. Questions will be directed toward gaining clarity of the reading material. Rabbit trails are discouraged.
