 THE WEEKLY WOMEN’S TORAH STUDY GROUP

women's bible study

The Women’s Torah Study Group (not to be confused with the Rosh Hodesh group)

 

TUESDAYS AT 12 NOON
 (Bring your own dairy or kosher lunch) 

AT RABBI HALINA RUBINSTEINS HOME IN IRVINGTON 

The curriculum consists of a careful in-depth reading of the weekly Torah portion (not in-sync with the synagogue readings)  and an in-depth discussion of a book of Jewish interest.

This is a wonderful non-threatening environment to study Torah with focus on text analysis (in English), commentary and discussions on themes relevant to community, prayer, women’s issues, concepts of God, belief, values and many others.

THE GROUP IS OPEN.  IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING PLEASE EMAIL PAM  



 
 
 

WANTED: TORAH READERS, HAFTARAH READERS, DAVENERS AND MEMBERS TO PREPARE A DVAR TORAH 

 As a member-led Chavurah we are always in need of volunteers to fulfill all of these roles. Do not feel intimidated! Preparing a Dvar Torah, reading Torah or Haftarah and even public davening are uplifting experiences; just ask anyone who has volunteered. We will provide tapes, resources, help and guidance. Please volunteer!

 

 

Sponsor Chavurah Kiddush


Who are we?

Rosh Pinah Chavurah of the Rivertowns is a member-led Jewish religious congregation. Services, in the Conservative, egalitarian tradition, are held every shabbat and for all Jewish holidays, including Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We read the full weekly torah portion and use the original Sim Shalom siddur. We formed the chavurah to create a fellowship of Jews who wish to daven (pray) and congregate in an atmosphere of respect, joy, warmth, camaraderie and trust. The Chavurah invites anyone interested to join us for services.

Our Jewish community

The Chavurah is very participatory and those with various synagogue skills are invaluable to our community in many capacities. Chavurah members serve as shaliach tzibur (cantor), leyn (read Torah), serve as gabbayim (service 'helpers') and prepare the drashot (Torah commentary or sermons). Rosh Pinah has ongoing study groups, a women's Rosh Chodesh group and has had an adult bat mitzvah class. We also hold social events, sponsor social action programs and participate in the life cycle events of our members, including shivas, aufrufs and baby namings.

Our location & organization

We meet at Temple Beth Shalom in Hastings and are indebted to that congregation for allowing us to use space in their beautiful synagogue building. Our members are from Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Ardsley, Irvington, Tarrytown, Scarsdale, other parts of Westchester, and beyond. We are a non-profit organization with a Board of Trustees.


Do you wish to be added to our mailing list?

Next Board Meeting

 
Next board meeting will be on on Tuesday, May 10 at 8:00 p.m. at the home of Bev Kissel.

 

Board of Trustees meetings are generally scheduled for the second Tuesday of the month.
 
 
Shabbat morning services
Our regular Shabbat morning services are held at 9:00AM at Temple Beth Shalom, 740 Broadway in Hastings in the large classroom on the lower level.  Because of Bar & Bat Mitzvahs taking place there simultaneously, PLEASE park on side streets and Broadway and NOT in the parking lot. THANKS!

Scheduled Dates

 
At shabbat services, SAT., MAY 7th, we will celebrate the aufruf of Adam Rothstein, son of Janet and David Rothstein, and Ariel Factor Birdoff. The kiddush will be sponsored in their honor by the Rothstein family. Services will be in the ground floor classroom.
