The Story Behind Torah Topics for Today
Torah Topics for Today is a family tradition.
As young parents, Fred and Joyce Claar were committed to modeling a a life of Jewish values for their children. Friday nights were a special time for the family to come together and share their reflections on the week and engage in heartfelt conversations about life. These conversations were guided by ideas that Fred and Joyce gleaned from the weekly Torah reading. Family and Shabbat guests looked forward to these discussions, which continue today with a new generation of Claars at their parents’ table.
Fred and Joyce Claar were inspired to develop a series of discussion topics around the Torah reading cycle with Rabbinic writers. They are pleased to share Torah Topics for Today with learners of all ages.
