Beit Midrash – A Guide To The Perplexed

Now both in-person and online!

In the Bet Alef Living Room at 806 N 64th St, Seattle WA 98103 and on Zoom

Join us on the 1st and 3rd Shabbat mornings for our study of Maimonides’ A Guide To The Perplexed.This controversial text has been a point of contention for centuries in Jewish communities. This philosophical masterpiece is, indeed, credited for ushering in a new era in Jewish thought and, as such, for being a transformative influence on our people.

Note: please purchase the translation of The Guide of The Perplexed by Shlomo Pines, which includes an Introductory Essay by Leo Strauss. If you are unable to find a copy within an affordable price range for you, please e-mail Rabbi Olivier by clicking here and we will make sure to have a copy sent to you.
