Midrash with Rabbi Asher Dordek

This is an excellent time to join Rabbi Asher Dordek Wednesdays at 8pm in the Library, as the Midrash class has recently started a new book:

Midrash Otiyot D'Rabbi Akiva

All men and women in the community are invited to explore the Aleph Bet in this well-known sefer in pursuit of greater understanding of the Creator of the universe.
