"Gems of the Talmud, Rereading Creation... I strongly recommend any class that Rabbi Shargel teaches. I have never come away from a class without learning something new, and often something surprising!"

  Lisa K.

"Your class on Creation is fresh and delightfully different. Even people who know the Genesis story well will find new insights and meaning - warmly recommended for everyone at all levels."

  Jac F., synagogue past president in both the U. S. and Israel 

"I love learning with Rabbi Shargel. I try never to miss any of her Zoom classes. Even recovering from surgery hasn’t stopped me!"

  Howard M. 

"Rabbi Shargel's insights are always illuminating...The class is super-friendly, and you need not be fluent in Hebrew to participate."

  Andrea P.

"Don't miss the opportunity to learn with my very dear Rabbi Shargel. I've been studying with her for years and the invaluable learning never ends."
