Programming & Education  
Learning for adults, teens and youth

Why attend a class, program or service? Rabbi Yehoshua ben Perachya offers one rationale.  Speaking to Jews in the second century BCE, he said, “Find yourself a teacher and make a friend.” (Avot 1:6) It is still good advice. So often today, people list loneliness and lack of community as some of the biggest challenges in their lives. We chose Rabbi Yehoshua’s words as the theme for this year’s education and programming book for this reason. - read more

A Special Tallit Project in Time for Simhat Torah 

Skilled volunteers will hand embroider the names of children on a large size Tallit to be used on the bima as a canopy during the annual children's blessing.

For $10 per name, a child's name may be added to this special Tallit. The Tallit will be displayed and used during our beautiful tradition of the children's aliyah on Simhat Torah.

For more information contact the Sisterhood or pick up a flier in the lobby to have a name added.
