Join us for a brief shiur during the end of kiddush. Philip Gibbs will teach. Do you (or anyone you know) ever have that awkward moment when you really have to go to the bathroom but don't know what to do with your tzitzit? Does that make you wonder why we are so careful to not bring a tallit in the bathroom, but wear a tallit katan without abandon? This brief shiur will overlap the end of kiddush, so there’ll be plenty of time to nosh, chat, learn, and still make it to lunch on time.
