Shabbat Shiur

Linger at VBS after services and enjoy lunch at a Shabbat “Shiur” — Shabbat Lesson. Bring your plate from Kiddush and pull up a chair as we meet a wide variety of extraordinary teachers and individuals who have something of interest to share with our community. Check our Shabbat calendar for upcoming speakers and topics.

Past guests have included: authors, university presidents, representatives from Israeli organizations, members of Congress and other political speakers, artists and professors. After the formal presentation, our guests are available for questions and discussions.
