On October 19, the first Curbside Torah group met to review both Breishit** and the upcoming portion, Noach.*** We will be reviewing Lekh Lekha**** on the coming Sunday, October 26.
*In the regular course of the year, the first verses of a new Torah portion are introduced on Shabbat afternoon and read on Monday and Thursday morning, in advance of the full reading on the following Shabbat. E.g: Noach was introduced on Shabbat afternoon, October 18, and the first 14 verses are read Oct. 20 and Oct. 23, in advance of the full reading on Oct. 25.
