Join us and Rabbi Jessica Yarkin, Assistant Rabbi of Temple Adat Ari El, on Thursday, February 28th, for the first Torah Study Breakfast of the year! Doing what she does best — relating ancient scripture to modern life — Rabbi Yarkin’s Mind Your Mannas talk will teach us all how to live primarily in the present rather than in fear of the future.
