heritage and our future. Our
meetings are very uplifting
and educational. They rein-
force and enhance our com
mitment."
Last summer, to celebrate
their chavurah's tenth an-
niversary, they spent a
"Jewish weekend"• in New
York City. Elaine Goldsmith
recalls, "We went to all the
Jewish sections of the city,
met a scribe who fixes Torahs
and visited the Jewish
museum. This summer, we
are planning a trip to visit
`Jewish Toronto.'
Bertha Chomsky has been
involved in chavurot for over
40 years. She began in a
Hadassah study group at the
suggestion of her husband
Max, a Hebrew and Jewish
scholar, now deceased.
Today she, is a member of
the Institute of Retired Pro-
fessionals, a group for men
and women, 62 years and
older, that offers a variety of
chavurot. She is a member of
the IRP's weekly "Bible as
Natural History" group. "It's
an interesting group," she
says. "And it's a place to
learn. The IRP offers retired
people a place to listen and
learn."
Gilbert Silver=man and
Rabbi Leonard Perlstein
might at first seem like un-
likely Sunday morning study
partners. But the relationship
is now in its tenth year.
Silverman, a philanthropist
and patron of the arts, ex-
plains, "I am a civil engineer.
I'm interested in numbers,
geography, history, archeol-
ogy — all exact sciences.
Rabbi Perlstein is basically a
genius in Talmud and com-
mentary. He is interested in
theoogy and faith. Our two-
to-three-hour study sesion is
one of compromise and dis-
cusSion."
The study sessions began
ten years ago as a means to
tutor Silverman's son, Eric,
before his bar mitzvah. "I
made the mistake of sitting
through the first lesson and
decided I'd like to learn too,"
Silverman recalls. "Three
years later, Eric dropped off,
but my next son Paul began
his bar mitzvah study. After
the fifth year, it was just the
rabbi and me."
Silverman sums up his ex-
perience: "We have been
slowly reading the Talmud
with famous commentary.
Now we are two-thirds
through with the prophets. I
feel if I study forever, I won't
even begin to scratch the sur-
face."
"I like the idea of learning
and feel if I learn something
each day, it's for the good.
Sunday isn't a real educa-
tional day. I like to begin it
with our study. Then I feel I
can do whatever else I want to
on that day; I've paid my
dues!" ❑
