I am still on a high from yesterday!
Temple Beth Torah in Tamarac, FL had the first of it’s monthly Adult Learning Series. Rabbi Aaron Katz got the ball rolling for us with the history of Jewish Law leading up to the Talmud with 27 participants taking it all in.
Rabbi Katz has a way of teaching through his deliverance and humor that makes a participant want more and more. I have studied with him before and always look forward to it because I always leave learning something. He knows how to relay the information in a way that no matter how little or how much you know, you will leave with more knowledge.
I left the class smiling and looking forward to next month when we have Rabbi Sugarman, a JTS Fellow, speaking to us about Judaism and the Environment.
I reminded myself yesterday that I teach so much that it is very important for me to feed my mind as well. It is difficult for me to take the time to do that, because sometimes I think about all the things I should be doing for work, but if I don’t feed my mind, the rest of me feels empty and I am not as good a teacher. I also signed up for a once a month Torah class which begins next week. Can’t wait!
When I feed my mind, I feed my whole self.
