Sunday, March 27, 2016 17 Adar II 5776

10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

 

Not Your Hebrew School Bible: Sex, Lies, and Love in the Torah.

Racier than most soap operas, more shocking than the tabloids, the Bible is filled with stories that usually get left out from grade school education.  Here’s your chance to learn about some of the juicy bits your teacher wouldn’t share with you.Sunday Brunch starts at 10:30 am and presentation begins at 11:00 am.  Question period follows presentation.
