Chavurah Masarti

Lynchburg, VA                  Founded on 2 Cheshvan, 5766 

House of Study

  Members of our Chavurah gather to study in three distinct ways.  First, as part of our Kabbalat Shabbat service, it is customary for the leader to prepare a d'var torah.  Often times this presentation leads to a discussion of the themes of the weekly sidra.  Second, we gather for formal study (reading assignments are listed below).  Third, members of the Chavurah routinely raise questions and generate informal discussion about a variety of issues.  This page contains resources to support all three of these activities of study.
