Bread and Torah is inspired by the passage in the Mishna, Pirke Avot 3:17: Without bread [literally “flour”], there is no Torah; without Torah there is no bread.

Affirming the importance of both spiritual and physical sustenance in Jewish life, Bread and Torah Programs are creative, hands-on learning experiences that combine traditional Jewish scribal arts and bread making with Jewish spiritual teachings and practices.

Bread and Torah is supported by Temple Sinai, Saratoga Springs, NY,
and many generous friends and allies.
