Sweet Tastes of Torah IV:

A Community Night of Learning

Held February 2, 2013

This year's Sweet Tastes of Torah was inspired by the encounter at Mount Sinai. How do we find Sinai today, whether the mountain itself, or that which it represents? Was what happened there across a divide that we still traverse?

The North Jersey Board of Rabbis (NJBR) seeks to enhance the life of the North Jersey Jewish community; better understand how to use their positions to enhance the long-term spiritual and fiscal health of congregations or Jewish community organizations; and take a united stand, when appropriate, on issues confronting the Jewish community.

Originally founded decades ago as the Bergen County Board of Rabbis, the name was changed in 1997 to include rabbis of all streams who live or work in Bergen, North Hudson, or eastern Passaic counties, New Jersey. The founding members were also interested in fostering bonds of collegiality and building understanding and cooperative relationships among rabbis of the different religious movements in Judaism.
