Eser Jewish Learning

What is Eser?

Eser is Hebrew for ten. The number ten has special significance in Judaism: the Ten Commandments form the bedrock of Jewish standards of right and wrong; ten individuals make a quorum for communal ceremony; and ten sefirot, or attributes, reveal the spiritual realm existing in nature.  

As an Eser participant, you will explore contemporary issues with a group of your peers uncovering relevance in ancient ideas and Jewish wisdom. 

Weekly sessions are held at a group member’s home and facilitated by a young Jewish educator. Outside of learning sessions, groups come together for a Shabbat meal and optional social gatherings.
