Saturday morning, Dec. 3, at 11 a.m., all are invited to Torah study, which is divided into a two topics of discussion: first, a short discussion of the portion of the week: Vayetze, Genesis 28:10-32:3 about Jacob’s dream, and love story with Rachel, although he must marry her sister Leah first. The second main focus of study will be on the Book of Joshua, as the Israelites entered into the Promised Land.
