Adult Forum - Bishop John Rabb, "The Torah - Part 1"

Former Bishop Suffragan of Maryland the Right Rev. John l. Rabb will present a three part series on The Pentateuch, also called the Torah or Story. These books are the ones that can be found on the scrolls in the sanctuaries of synagogues.  They are the most formative guide to the covenant with Israel as God’s people. The Books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy can be understood from four sources: reflecting how Israel sees itself; understands monotheism and develops a moral code; an understanding of worship; and the place of ritual. This presentation will be presented in three consecutive forms, with the first week devoted to an overview of the five books.
