Omer Learning Program at YITH

 

We would like to, as a shul, complete studying the five books of the Torah. We are encouraging each membership unit to sign up for a parsha to learn during the Omer, which will conclude in a siyum at the Shavuot Community Celebration. This is a special opportunity for families to study together or for members to form chavrutot with one another so that we can prepare to celebrate receiving the Torah once again this Shavuot. To sign up, please click here.
