"Turn it and turn it, for everything is in it."

These immortal words about Torah from Pirke Avot express the powerful idea that the act of discovery . . . and self discovery . . . is open to all of us. Each of us is called, is challenged, to find his or her place within our tradition. And that tradition is rich with possibility . . . "everything is in it."

We look forward to another year of stimulating and fulfilling programs centered on the many facets of Jewish learning.
