עֵץ חַיִּים הִיא לַמַּחֲזִיקִים בָּהּ. וְתמְכֶיהָ מְאֻשָּׁר
“It is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, And happy is every one who grasps it.” Proverbs 3:18
A life of Judaism is not a declaration of faith but a pull to action. If we desire to find holiness in our lives we must work and toil to find it. For this reason, our verse that we sing in synagogue, Etz Chaim He l’machazikim Bah, it (the Torah) is a tree of life to those who constantly grasp on to it. If we do not try to grasp hold of the Torah it we will not be influenced by it’s life giving medicine. By constant learning and connection to the vast Torah wisdom of our tradition, we are able to full invigorate ourselves in a Jewish life. We invite anyone and everyone, regardless of Hebrew language ability or experience, to join at any time in any one of our many adult education class offerings.
