Join the synagogues of the Upper East Side for a night of communal learning at 92Y!

Rabbis and Cantors from many of the congregations in our neighborhood will offer sessions that focus on our love of Torah and our dedication to soaking ourselves in its words and teachings. We'll reflect on the teachings in their own context, and how they can be relevant in our own lives.

R.S.V.P. here
