The Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning at Temple Emanu-El presents “Torah Under the Trees,” three Central Park walking tours and text-study programs led by architectural historian Anthony Robins and the center’s director, Rabbi Leon Morris. Biblical and rabbinic texts are studied on the following themes: “Returning to the Garden of Eden,” “The Struggle Between Nature and Technology” and “Finding Consolation.” Central Park serves as a retreat from everyday work life and offers “a sense of hope and comfort, renewal and inspiration,” according to Morris. Robins has led many tours through New York City and has lectured for museums, universities and private groups around the world.

Meet at Temple Emanu-El, 1 E. 65th St.; July 28, Aug. 4 and Aug. 11, 6 p.m.; $15 per tour. (212-507-9580 or
