In June, we began a monthly learning session on Shabbat Morning. The learning consists of series of 3 to 4 monthly sessions on a specific topic. The topic of the first series is Sefer Shoftim (Judges) and is being facilitated by Andy Hoffman. Over the four sessions, Andy is leading discussions which include perspectives from archaeology, anthropology, history, and our biblical text. 

In September, we will continue our engagement with the book of Judges focusing on Chapters 10:6 to 12:7, the story of Yiftach.

If you have any questions on accessing the material please contact Andy Hoffman at [email protected] or Martin Kagan at 713-270-4469.

Andy’s perspective on Torah study isn’t come and be taught, instead, it is “come and study with me so we learn together.”


We are making abundant material available to you to prepare for your participation, including copies of the Shoftim text in Hebrew and English translation. (Alternatively, you are welcome to use your own Tanah.) We will share these texts and articles for you to download from a Dropbox. Please print out your own copies if you want them and have them available during the study sessions.

We request that participants print and bring with them the materials to be used in the learning session.  A very limited number of copies of Andy’s materials will be available at the session itself. Click here to access and print the materials.
