HaMaqom’s Text Circles program offers learners the opportunity to delve deeper into Jewish textual study through a focus on either Talmud or Zohar. Participants engage with this Jewish textual learning in an intimate, communal setting with inspiring teachers and students at their sides. Our Talmud and Zohar groups are conducted monthly throughout the year. For more information about our text circles, contact Tamar Zaken, Chief Program Officer of HaMaqom | The Place at Tamar@hmqm.org.
This year all our programming will remain online. Participants are welcome to sign up for any Talmud Circle they would like, regardless of geographic area. When we are able to return to learning in person, we will reconvene in the geographic areas indicated in the Talmud Circle group listings.
