Shaare Zedek offers a unique way to learn our sacred texts with Rebbetzin Elizabeth Bright.  “Elizabeth’s Torah Class” held on Wednesday mornings for the last 15 years (2002-Present) is a Montreal wide community class housed in the Ruth Karpman Library at Shaare Zedek Congregation.  Everyone is welcome in the class no matter his or her background, synagogue affiliation, age or gender.  Elizabeth’s Torah class is a lively and passionate in-depth study using traditional commentaries to explore Judaism and cultures of the Biblical periods. The class started with ten individuals studying the Five Books of Moses and continued over the years through the completion of the whole Tanakah, graduating over 25 people.  Today Elizabeth’s Torah Class continues with more studies of the History of the Jewish People and the Prophetic Writings.  

All are welcome! Classes are ongoing on Wednesdays (beginning August 30) at 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.
