Led by Deutsch-Scholar-in-Residence Rabbi Andrea Weiss, Ph.D.

The weekly Torah portion, “Parashat Mishpatim,” contains a collection of laws addressing a range of criminal and civil matters. Many of these laws remain relevant to us today. We will study the parashah through the lens of The Torah: A Women’s Commentary as we mark the tenth anniversary of this award-winning publication.

RSVPs appreciated but not required below or to Shandi Greve Penrod at 314-569-0010.
