Jewish study group, Portland, ca. 1985

Contributed by Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh


Members of a study group from Shaarey Tphiloh Synagogue, meeting at Perry's on Fore Street in Portland, are, from left, Joe Bornstein, Rabbi Mandel, Reuben Siegal, Richard Slosberg.

Chivra mishnayas -- groups who studied Jewish texts -- began in Portland early in the 20th century. When people's schedules began to change and they could no longer easily gather at the synagogue for study, the groups began to meet for lunch or at member's offices.
