A Temple Sinai Program: Lunch & Learn Daily Specials - The Mishnah: Key to the Treasure of Oral Torah Part 2: The High Holy Days and Shabbat with Rabbi Lawrence Englander

August 13, 20, 27 and September 3

In our first Mishnah course, we discovered that most of what we observe in Judaism today comes not from the Bible but from what we call the Oral Torah, composed by the ancient rabbis. Part 2 will be a separate unit, so it doesn’t matter whether you attended the first part. In these sessions we’ll explore the traditions regarding the High Holy Days and Shabbat. In particular: How did Judaism evolve from the Temple to the Synagogue? How did the fixed Jewish calendar evolve? What types of activity are forbidden on Shabbat, and why? and How can we, as Reform Jews, ensure a meaningful observance of these holy times? Time: 12:00 p.m. Cost: Per Session: Members: $7; Non-members: $10 Per Series: Members: $18; Non-members: $25. Register online at, call the Temple Office at 416-487-4161 or email

Sponsor: Temple Sinai Congregation of Toronto
