Community Beit Midrash

Embracing our desire to be together and learn together, this exciting new Beit Midrash (house of study) will give all of Jewish Omaha the opportunity to engage in spirited and challenging study with Rabbi Steven Abraham, Rabbi Ari Dembitzer, Rabbi Mendel Katzman and Rabbi Brian Stoller on a variety of timely and thought-provoking topics. Weekly classes will be held on a rotating basis at Beth El, Temple Israel and the Jewish Community Center, and will culminate with a Tikkun Leil Shavuot evening of study at Beth El. Sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Omaha, the Beit Midrash will bring us together to strengthen one another.

RSVP for the Community Panels at the JCC by contacting Mark Kirchhoff.
