Monday, December 6

10:30 a.m. – What’s a Mitzvah?
The rabbis of the Talmud tell us that there are 613 mitzvot in the Torah.  What are they? What do they mean?  Can we do all of them?  You’ll find your answers in this course, as we explore Sefer Hachinuch, a book written in 13th century Spain, to serve as a guide to understanding mitzvot. Each one of the 613 is explained – the how to’s, the why, and who is obligated to observe/follow each mitzvah. We will utilize the text found online at https://www.sefaria.org/Sefer_HaChinukh.
