We gathered in garden settings while in Israel in the fall of 2013, to study together selected passages from scripture in locations that “set our feet on the ground.” For example, in this picture we are sitting in the Dan Nature Preserve in northern Israel overlooking Lebanon, continuing our reading in 1 Kings 18 begun the previous day on Mt. Carmel. It is the story of Elijah meeting up with Obadiah, servant of Ahab (you remember him, the one married to Jezebel). Rabbi Alan facilitated our study with incredible insights derived from the historical context, language, and the nature of Hebrew narrative. My heart was skipping with delight as my very life was being transformed, immersed in the living word of God. In true rabbinic fashion, the insights were followed by questions to provoke our hearts into dialogue with God and each other. I took as many notes as I could possibly gather, desiring to share with those at home what I have learned. Would you like to hear and learn and
be transformed also?

Come then. Whenever you can. You need not register. Just come.

6:30-8:30 pm the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month beginning February 4th

We will sit as Jesus’ disciples at the feet of our rabbi who is present with us always and has given us his Spirit to teach us if we will but listen.
