Join us for a delicious dinner along with intensive study and discussion of Jewish texts. The first session will feature rabbinical student Leora Kling Perkins discussing "Follow the Law of the Land" — what happens when Jewish law differs from the laws imposed by civil authorities? On July 25th, she will lead a discussion of "Community & Difference."
