Study Torah at Oak Park Temple

Oak Park Temple provides a number of opportunities for studying Torah:

  • Mussar Study – led by Rabbi Weiss – Shabbat mornings at 8:30 am.
    There is no need for signing up–just drop in and join in!
  • Torah Study – Group 1 studies continuously, about a chapter per week of Torah (lay-led) – Sundays at 9:30 am.
  • Biblical Hebrew  - Sundays at 11:00 am
  • Adult Hebrew - Sundays at noon

Chant Torah: The Adult Education committee is contacting past B’nai Mitzvah to see if they would like to read their Torah portion again when there is no Bar/Bat Mitzvah scheduled.  We expect to contact about a dozen teens this year, and of course we’d love to invite a few adults to read as well.  If you have any interest in reading Torah for a Shabbat service, contact the office.

Cantillation Classes

We will not have a Beginning Cantillation class this year, but instead we will have Continuing Cantillation at 6:15 pm on Tuesdays.

We will also have a Cantillation Review class at 7:15 pm on Tuesdays. If you have already learned the basics and are interested in chanting Torah on Saturday mornings, this is the class for you! We will work together on the “extraordinary” trope and learn new Torah portions together.

Please contact Lauren Levrant for further information on Cantillation classes.
