  • Adult Education Class - Wise Aging - from 10:30 am to noon

    May 20, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

    RTPV Adult Education Series presents - Sibling Relationships in the Torah
    Free (donations accepted!) Taught by Rabbi Steve Altarescu

    The Torah is hardly a guide for creating harmony among siblings. Cain and Abel, Jacob
    and Esau, Rachel and Leah, Joseph and his brothers are all stories of siblings
    competing for love and acceptance.

    We will explore how our own struggles are reflected in theirs, and find some models of
    positive relationships in the Torah as well.
