‘Nosh and Knowledge’ restarts Oct. 30

The weekly Torah study and discussion, “Nosh and Knowledge,” is coming back to the Jewish Community of Ojai, beginning Saturday, Oct. 30, at 10 a.m. in the Social Hall, 530 W. El Roblar, Ojai.

The group is open to both members and non-members. It is self-led, with the mitzvah of studying, sharing and discussing the current weekly Torah portion, which will be circulated amongst the participants.

This group will have open input and commentaries from many viewpoints and resources. There is no blueprint for “this is how it is done.” All are invited to participate and to invite others to join also. There will be a Zoom option for joining, but attendance in person will likely be a richer experience for all.
