Friends and family come together to eat, to share, and to immerse in words of life-giving Torah. One can’t imagine a Torah more relevant and real.

Enjoy transliterated and fully-accessible Hebrew prayer
Rejoice around the Torah with schnapps and sparkling cider
Eat and engage with community over lunch
