Torah Study

Chronicles: Boring Repetition or Insight into Second Temple Times?

October 6 through May 25, Saturday mornings from 9:30 - 10:20 am 

(except Nov. 24, Dec. 22 & 29, Feb. 16, Apr. 6)


Come study the Book of Chronicles with Rabbi Aron and Rabbi Postrel on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 10:20 am. Join us regularly or just drop in. You are welcome to bring your own Tanach or we will have copies in the library where we meet each Shabbat morning with coffee, tea, and a little snack.

Chronicles, the last book in the Jewish BIble, is often ignored. It is not read at any public worship service, Shabbat or holidays, and is known mainly for its long genealogies. Chronicles retells the story of the Jewish people from ancient times to the Second Temple period with a special emphasis on Kings David and Solomon, and their successors on the thrones of the Southern Kingdom of Judea. But Chronicles can be a fascinating read if one examines it with an eye towards the differences in its story of the Exodus and other events in Israelite history and for its introduction of the concept of Torah, an enduring contribution to Judaism.
