    A lively discussion on the weekly Torah portion facilitated by Rabbi Evon Yakar and Devorah Cohen. 
  • Tze U'lamed - Go and Learn - Every Other Monday (unless noted in the calendar) 5-6:15pm - Currently held at Comma Coffee in Carson City
    This is a discussion and class that typically explores elements of the weekly Torah portion, an upcoming holiday or an area of study of interest to the participants or Rabbi Evon. 
  • TBY Book Club - The Book Club meets about every 6 weeks (check the calendar for dates) from 6:15-7:15pm and is currently held on Mondays at Comma Coffee in Carson City following Tze U'lamed.
There is no fee for these classes or meetings and membership in TBY is not required, but always welcome!  Donations to the General Fund of the Temple support Rabbi Evon's presence in our community and are encouraged for participation in our classes.
