I have developed a unique approach to studying Torah that I call Torahscope. We begin with each participant’s birth portion. This means that each participant explores the Torah portion that was being read in synagogue the week they were born. Each person asks deeply personal questions about their portion, finding the gems to guide their life. This approach has been highly successful helping the most skeptical grasp the power of Torah study.
I am also available for other forms of Torah study. I believe that we need to ask the questions, “how can this text guide me, our communities, or the world?”
Contact me if you’re interested in joining my next Torahscope class, or learning more about it.
This is the Hebrew letter Chet which can look like a gate and also is the letter associated with the number 8. It is also the first letter of my name, Chaya (alive/life), and is the first letter of the word Chochmah which means wisdom. You will notice that it is made up of two letter zayins. This was made by Barbara Carpenter-Baggett from Beth Chaim Congregation in Danville as part of the Aleph Bet exhibit. This quilt often lays on the Torah when she is open in between readings.
