The Palo Alto Community Talmud Circle, in association with New Lehrhaus, is a growing, dynamic and welcoming community of adult participants engaged in modern Talmud study and active conversation. While the majority of participants are continuing students, anyone may join. No prior experience with Talmud Study is required. Curiosity, openness and unconditional mutual regard are all one needs.
Nine monthly meetings will be held on Sundays from 10:00 AM–12:00 PM between October and June. Please join us for a free 'taste' on Sunday, September 10! Click here for more information.
Rabbi Peretz Wolf-Prusan focuses on community education for the Bay Area through conferences, retreats, tours and text circles. From 1990 to 2010, he served Congregation Emanu-El of San Francisco as Rabbi and Educator. In 2002 he was awarded the Covenant Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the transmission of Jewish knowledge, values and identity. Rabbi Wolf-Prusan received his MAHL and Rabbinic degrees at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. He and his wife Becki, a second generation native of the East Bay, have happily returned to live in Berkeley. Rabbi Peretz recently retired after his 10-year tenure with HaMaqom. We are elated that he stayed with us to continue educating Talmud groups.
