• Every Shabbat morning before the Shacharit prayer, Rabbi Moti gives a lecture related to the weekly Torah portion.

  • We would like to start a reading group in Japanese (maybe bilingual) for the book "The Divine Code," which explains in detail the Seven Laws of Noah for non-Jews. If you are interested, please contact us.

  • Recommended books

Note: It is prohibited to throw away printed sentences from Torah and the name of the Creator, and they need to be buried in appropriate procedure. Please don't throw away books with holy scriptures in them, but send them to us.

We read Chumash books (Pentateuch with a bit of commentary from the oral tradition) published by Kol Menachem on every Shabbat. It's Hebrew-English bilingual book.
