Embracing Community

Engaging the Jewish People

Transforming the World

 

"Bais Abe" is a warm, welcoming, inclusive modern Orthodox synagogue led by Rabbi Hyim Shafner located in the University City area of St. Louis, close to Washington University. The community combines observance, passionate prayer and deep Torah study with creativity, openness and activism. Surrounded by stately, quiet neighborhoods and adjacent to the Delmar Loop, one of the most exciting urban oasis in the country, Bais Abe is the perfect balance of urban energy and suburban calm.     Individuals and families of all backgrounds and levels of observance are welcome.  For more information on upcoming events click HERE.

      Shalhevet Women's Kollel

    Sunday, Aug 28th 7:30p to 8:30p
    Shalhevet, the St. Louis Women's Kollel, is back with Maharat Rori! (and alternating teacher Jack Shapiro) The format, schedule, and masechta we will learn will be slightly different. We will meet at Bais Abraham, every Sunday evening from 7:30-8:30. Rori and Jack will teach on alternating weeks (with each covering for the other now and then). On weeks that Rori leads the group, there will be a chevrutah component. We will be learning Masechet Rosh Hashannah (in the same Koren volume as Beitzah). Each week, I will send an email on what was covered to help anyone who misses a week keep up. Both teachers are very good at making gmarah accessible to people at all skill levels. Hope to see you this Sunday for the kickoff session with Maharat Rori. Feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions. Phyllis phyllis.shapiro1@gmail.com
