Welcome to Torah Studies.

A learning program of the highest caliber, Torah Studies was developed by the world-renowned Rohr Jewish Learning Institute. The program brings you a series of stimulating text and discussion based classes that take place on a weekly basis. Our lessons will engage you in a multidimensional way by challenging you intellectually, spiritually and emotionally. They explore contemporary issues through a Torah perspective as well as tackling timeless questions in the Jewish tradition.

I invite you to browse through the topics and to join us for some weekly inspirational study. These classes are open to all, whatever your level of learning may be, and I encourage you to bring your friends along. 

Classes held Mondays 7:30pm at Chabad (Begins 11/27)

Class 1 Game of Names
Who Is the Real Jew?

What’s the ideal modus operandi? Aggressive and brash; assertive and confident? Or perhaps more reconciliatory and compromising; meager and humble. It is this identity crisis that unfolds over the name change from “Jacob” to “Israel.” That both names are kept for posterity speaks volumes to our approach in life as servants of the Divine.

Class 1 The Bigger Picture
Everything You Do Affects the Entire World

It’s easy to be the good guy when nobody’s watching. But when there’s nobody around, where do you find the moral fortitude to withstand temptation? It’s the realization that our actions affect far more than the here and now that empowers us to act responsibly.

Class 1 For G‑d's Sake
Are We Capable of Altruism?

We get it. It’s hard to always be firing on all cylinders. We’re talking in a spiritual sense—to always be doing good things for the right reasons. So, go ahead and do what it takes to get the job done. But remember, there’s one part that you should always keep sacred, a lone pocket of truth that is altruistic and pure. And it’s burning right there—in the Chanukah candles.

Class 1 When Life Give You Exile...
Lessons in Anger Management

If your brothers sold you into slavery, you wound up in prison, and you were estranged from your home for seventeen-plus years, you probably wouldn’t think too highly of your next of kin. But Joseph shattered all expectations and acted majestically with his past tormentors. From whence his courage? Expose the secret sauce of this towering figure of forgiveness.

Class 1 Obstacles or Stepping Stones?
Finding the Light within the Dark

We’re used to thinking of light and darkness as polar opposites, existential metaphors for all kinds of binary worlds. In this class, we plumb the depth of kabbalistic paradigms to come up with a fresh perspective—one that can, perhaps, reframe life in a surprisingly empowering way.
