Making Connections to Judaism
Friday Evening December 6: Jewish Parenting
Saturday Morning December 7: The Jerusalem Talmud

Rabbi Abrams, the founder and director of Maqom: A School for Adult Talmud Study, was the Guest Speaker for our Community Selichot Service in 2012.

Rabbi Abrams spoke then about the Jerusalem Talmud, the subject of her latest book, The Other Talmud: The Yerushalmi: Unlocking the Secrets of The Talmud of Israel for Judaism Today.

The community has eagerly awaited Rabbi Abrams' return visit to Albuquerque!

On Friday evening - following the Kabbalat Shabbat service and  a delectable baked salmon dinner - Rabbi Abrams will offer a special presentation on Jewish Parenting.

On Saturday morning - after Kiddush - Rabbi Abrams will continue her exploration of the wisdom and wonders of the Jerusalem Talmud (as opposed to those of the more familiar Babylonian Talmud).

All events are free and open to the entire community -
except for the dinner on Friday evening!
