The lay-led Touro Torah Study group was started about 30 years ago and since then, has been meeting continuously, except once during Katrina and once during the pandemic. Over the years it expanded from a monthly session for about 30 minutes to what it is today: a weekly 90-minute session complete with bagels, coffee, challah and all the fixings. During the pandemic, it offered a Zoom option. Join this session and see how transformative lay-led Torah study can be and experience why Touro's group has met without interruption for three decades.
