The arc of history runs from primordial creation to ultimate redemption—and the Torah’s goal is to guide us through the time in between. What is the purpose of creation? What does God require of us in order to create the final perfected world? What wisdom is there in the Jewish tradition that might direct our steps to get there? Join one of the most influential and sophisticated Jewish thinkers of the 20th century and beyond, Rabbi Yitz Greenberg, on a journey with your havruta to think about these questions.

Through passages from traditional Jewish texts and excerpts from Rabbi Greenberg’s upcoming book, The Triumph of Life, we will explore the purpose of creation, the purpose of Torah, and the purpose of our own selves—as individuals and as a people—in bringing God’s vision to life.

Project Zug ( is an online havruta (paired) learning platform, which empowers Jews to take ownership over their learning  through weekly one-on-one learning.

Yiddish Meister and longtime leader of CABI's Yiddishkeit Readers Group, Dan Ronfeld, is launching a new book club—CABI Reads. We hope to encourage more readers with diverse titles that expand beyond Yiddish in translation.

Expect to read from a rich slice of modern Jewish literature including nonfiction, fantasy, and memoir (see the first five books below, along with links to reviews). Books are available on special order locally from Rediscovered Books or from your favorite online site. And of course, experience the joy of kibbitzing and noshing as always! Registration ($18 for each CABI Reads session) will precede each meetup and will cover noshes and facilities.




Please contact Dan Ronfeld at if you have questions.
