Zoom-Based Classes and Programs

While Kol Rinah's building is closed to the public, our learning is thriving online! For easy access to Zoom links and passwords to any of the following events, Kol Rinah members can log into their Kol Rinah website account and look for "Zoom Links" under "My Account." Zoom links to upcoming events are also sent out in weekly emails from the synagogue. Non-members are welcome to join our Zoom-based Community Learning events; they can call the Kol Rinah office at 314-727-1747 or email to request the relevant links.

Torah Talk features study and discussion of the week's Torah portion and is led by either Rabbi Arnow or Rabbi Shafrin. Torah Talk takes place every Friday at noon.

Zoom and Learn programs, covering a wide range of Jewish subjects and taught by experts both inside and outside our congregation, take place on Sundays, usually at 11:30am. During November, we are holding Zoom & Learns every other week, on Nov. 1, 15, and 29.

Nov. 15 @ 11:30am: The Secret History of the B-Mitzvah

Many of us learned that the "bar mitzvah" comes from the Talmud and the "bat mitzvah" comes from the 20th century, but the real story is more complicated - and more inclusive. Dr. Wendy Love Anderson takes us on a tour through ancient, medieval, and modern sources.

Nov. 29 @ 11:30am: Jewish Marriage: Keep the Old Ways, Create New Ways, or Reinterpret?

Jewish marriage has traditionally been non-egalitarian, so how has the Conservative movement dealt with it in the last fifty years? Rabbi Pamela Barmash shares her newly official ceremony and ketubbah.

A special class series on the Torah of Resilience will begin on Tuesday evening, Oct. 27, at 7:30pm and will continue for the next three weeks (meeting on Wednesday Nov. 4th rather than Tues. the 3rd due to elections). Congregants are welcome to join for one session or for all of them; Rabbis Arnow and Shafrin will alternate teaching.
