Torah Study at Congregation Beth Am

Engaging in Torah Study is one of the best gifts one can give to oneself. Each week we study and discuss our ancient text and discover that still, thousands of years later, the Torah life-lessons are relevant and profound. Our casual Torah study and discussion is a beautiful way to celebrate Shabbat. Torah lessons bring us closer towards finding meaning in our days. Led by Rabbi Bellows, we meet most Saturday mornings from 9:00-9:45am. We study the English translation of the Hebrew; no experience required. Please RSVP to Lynne at the synagogue (847-383-5017).

Next on "Sanctuary"...

Crossing the Line: The Israel Debate and Anti-Semitism on Campus When does debate cross the line to hate? The next episode of the public-affairs program “Sanctuary” probes the rising tide of anti-Israel activism on college campuses, and how legitimate protest is morphing into anti-Semitic taunts and attacks. Students from several Chicago-area campuses are featured, along with local and national educators and analysts. Cindy Sher hosts. Starting Monday, Dec. 1, the program will be available for viewing on the Jewish United Fund website, www.juf.org/interactive. “Sanctuary” is a joint production of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago and the Chicago Board of Rabbis, in cooperation with ABC7-Channel 7.
