Upcoming Learning Events

December 2018

  • Learner's Service, 12/1 10:00 am, chapel

Jenna Englender and YCT Intern Eliezer Lawrence will be co-facilitating an educational program on Shabbat Tefilot. This program will begin after Shacharit, will continue during Torah reading, and will conclude in time for participants to return to the sanctuary for Rabbi Adler's Dvar Torah and Musaf. Geared towards those looking to better understand the morning service as well as those simply looking for a chance to pause and explore their davening at a slower pace.

  • 10 Paths to God, first Tuesday of every month class, 12/4 7:30 pm, library

Join Director of Outreach Jenna Englender as we explore together a new curriculum from Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, which goes through ten paths to increase our connection with the Divine. From Jewish peoplehood to tzedakah, to prayer, to acts of loving kindness. We will learn texts together that explore these themes and encourage us to think about our own spiritual path and our connection to the fundamental pillars of Jewish life. All are welcome, questions are encouraged. Come with an open mind and a curious heart.
