Congregation Beth Tefillah'sTORAH BANK!

Just as Moses went up to Mount Sinai in preparation for the Giving of the Torah, we are preparing to receive the Torah again this year -
in an innovative way.

We invite you to join a new bank - The CBT Torah Bank

Following the success of the "Bank of Mitzvot", we declare the opening of the bank in which you will be able to invest by choosing a Jewish book of any kind. Philosophy, Halacha, Torah and its commentaries.

How to Join?

Sign up HERE, choose a book you would really like to become familiar with and write the amount of time you would like to invest in your studies. The first community round will last until Shavuot. The second round is from Shavuot to Rosh Hashanah. However, it is possible to join at any time.

What is the purpose of the project?

One of the most important things in Judaism is the connection to ourselves and to God through the Torah that He chose to give us. Every Jew has a part in the Torah, something that suits his soul in particular, and in it he can find the perfect path to take and a personal guide to life. The Torah doesn't belong to the Rabbi's! Therefore, if each day is regulated by a certain amount of time for study, we will discover how much life the Torah gives us and in this way we will be able to know more and more.

Who is the Bank for?

Everybody! Parents and children, working people, retired people, people who have studied and people who have not yet had an opportunity. You can learn alone, with family or friends. Why not give it a try.

Other important details of the program:

The focus of the Bank is the independent learning of each and every one of us. Everyone will be able to learn a book to 'his heart's desire'. In addition there will be some group meetings around a book shared by a group of people (dates will be determined later). There will also be half hour meetings on Sundays on a regular weekly basis after the morning minyan - "Torah and Bagels" to be run by the Rabbi or the Ambassadors.
