Sheer Joy at the Ladies’ Shiur

Ladies Shiur big

The ladies’ shiurim have been taking place on alternate Tuesdays every month.  We are a small group taught by the irrepressible Liat Mayerfeld, a wonderful teacher, who has invited us into a world where every word or action has a meaning that stems directly from biblical times.

Liat has taken us on a journey through the different minhagim (customs) of the varied communities that are part of Jewish life – the preparation for festivals and explaining how knowledge can change our perceptions of Judaism and its place in the world.

Please come and join us in these fascinating discussions – we provide refreshments – for the body as well as for the soul!
