Getting Ready to Start a New Tractate of the Talmud

For well over fifteen years MKT has maintained a weekly Talmud class. In the time that I have been here we have tackled the tractate of Pesachim (all about Pesach), the 57 most important Sugyot(sections) in the Talmud, the Tractate Baba Metzia ( all about returning lost objects, trustees, borrowers and bailees) and Tractate Megillah (which dealt mostly with Purim and all of its rites and rituals). Well we are about to finish Megillah and we are going to start a whole new Tractate. If you have been on the fence about joining the class because you didn’t want to jump in while we were in the middle of a Tractate, now is the time to hop on the study train. Starting after Thanksgiving we will

Why I Support Jewish Nevada

Ever since I was a teenager I have been connected to the Jewish Federation organizations where I lived, no matter what name it went under. My first encounter with the Jewish Federation in Chicago was when I was 17 and wanted to go on USY Israel Pilgrimage. My parents had two day school tuitions and one college tuition at the time being paid for by my dad’s Chicago elementary school principal salary. Without the help of the Federation scholarship, I would not have been able to participate in that life changing and impactful program that probably put me on the path to where I am today. As a Jewish community, we have many needs, religious, educational, cultural, medical, social and more. Rat

Book club is back December 10th

Midbar Kodesh Temple's monthly book club, facilitated by Ileen Spoor, will explore "A Fifty-Year Silence" at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 10.

Five years later, Anna packed her bags and walked out on Armand, taking the typewriter and their children. Aside from one
