Monday Night Torah – Weekly – 6-7 pm – taught by Phil Lazzar via Zoom. Links will be in the Weekly Update. Open to all ages, backgrounds, and experiences. We take a close look at the Torah portions of the week, the holidays, as well as other topics. The Torah offers us a truly radical worldview. The premise that it and we start with and build upon is the idea that there is a G-d who is the Absolute Good and who is intimately involved in everything that is happening. And, that G-d’s goal in creation is to bestow infinite good upon us. This of course leads us to wonder, if that is G-d’s goal, then why is the world in such a balagan? In addressing this question we look at a number of essential concepts: management vs. transformation, messengers vs. Sender, disease vs. symptoms, darkness vs. double-darkness, selfishness vs. selflessness, egotism vs. altruism, the relationship of arrogance to anger/frustration/annoyance, and more.
