Shabbat, February 24th, 12:00 pm – 1:30pm.
Although Jews are the people of the book, there are many parts of the Jewish bible, the TaNaKh, we never read in services. The word TaNaKh is an acronym for the Jewish bible’s 3 categories of books: the Torah (the five books of Moses), Nevi’im (the Prophets), and Ketuvim (the Scriptures). Over the course of the Jewish year, we read the full Torah, but we never read the full books of NaKh (Nevi’im and Ketuvim). But that has changed at Shaar Shalom! Each session, we study one more chapter of NaKh: discovering why these words were so sacred to our ancestors, and why so few Jews read them (outside of Halifax, that is). Find Rabbi Rank’s table at kiddush for a little “NaKh and Nosh.”
