Lifelong Learning

Limmud - PSC Learning Opportunities

Midrasha is a cohort of women interested in learning more about their Judaism, the power women have in our culture and religion, and some of the “hot topics” in our world today. If you are interested in being part of this cohort, email Rabbi Schatz at We meet every 3 weeks, hosted in a woman’s home and learn a different topic each time! We hope you will come to learn with us!

Kol Banot is a PSC and Wornick Jewish Day School sponsored program for girls entering their Bat Mitzvah year, and their mothers. Rabbi Schatz facilitates this program through monthly meetings and topics that make our girls and mothers work together to think through this transition of becoming Bat Mitzvah. We do art projects, cooking activities, chavruta text learning, conversations, familial research and much more. If you have any questions or interest in a group like Kol Banot, please email Rabbi Schatz at

Adult Kesher Learning is from 9:30-10:00 am each Kesher Shabbat. We hope you will join us for text learning surrounding the weekly Torah portion on the following dates: February 3, March 3, April 21. If you have any questions please email Rabbi Schatz at

Revealing the Torah One Verse at a Time
Fridays at 9:15 am - 10:15 am
Instructor: Rabbi Corey Helfand

A study of the weekly Torah portion, going line by line, verse by verse through the entire Torah (5 Books of Moses). We'll explore the intricacies of the Torah by looking at the Hebrew language, themes, authorship, and more. This is a great way to learn our tradition in a deep and meaningful way. All texts available in Hebrew and English. Open to all. No prior experience required. Join us for a beautiful way of accessing our sacred tradition.

Who Wrote the Bible
Thursdays from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

The Hebrew Bible is the foundational text of Judaism and Christianity. The question remains, however, who wrote it and why was it written? How does the authorship of the text inform the way we adhere to its teachings? The Hebrew Bible, and in particular, the Torah (Pentateuch) contains a rich diversity or sources that teach us a lot about ideology, literary expression, social and political circumstances, and theology (our relationship with the Divine). Over the course of our studies, we will look at select passages from the Torah and Hebrew Bible in Hebrew and English, explore parallel texts from other ancient Near Eastern religions/cultures, and wrestle with what our personal and communal relationship with this sacred text.
