Torah from Israel
Join us for a new Sunday morning learning program following Morning Minyan. Sessions will be led by a rabbi or a prominent partner or friend of BJ, who will will teach a monthly Torah class live from Israel. Each class will touch on a different topic that has been carefully chosen by the teacher to create an opportunity for enrichment and learning.
Yehoshua Drori will teach a session on Mizrahi and Sephardi Identity and Heritage: Learning With Sephardi Sages. Drori was born in the Kurdish neighborhood of Jerusalem, and is married to Stacy and the father of four children. He is a Talmud instructor at the Shalom Hartman Institute, one of the founders of Memizrach Shemesh and Kol Yisrael Haverim, and facilitates Kol Yisrael Haverim communities. Drori feels privileged to be active in the following organizations: Prisoners in Rehabilitation, Beit Hashem Nelech, Tag Meir (Spread the Light—Together Against Terror), Invitation to Piyut, and SPCA Israel. In addition, he performs weddings and Jewish ceremonies. Even though Drori sometimes teaches, he is always a student.
