Current & Upcoming Events
Up Your Jewish Game w/Rabbi Solomon (Zoom)
Wednesdays, June 1, 8, 22 & 29 at 7:30pm
Each session is standalone, so sign up for as many as you’d like.
TGIF: Boost your Shabbat hosting mojo! Dive deeper into the sources for the rituals done at a traditional Shabbat meal and create new practices to sanctify Shabbat at home.
Bless You: Jewish blessings, particularly those connected to everyday activities at home and on the go.
Enter in Style: We’ll explore the Biblical source for mezuzah, the blessings inside the mezuzah and how we might bring this powerful Jewish ritual object into our homes and lives.
Ready for Anything: Basic parameters of keeping kosher. Since the laws of kashrut are derived, traditionally, from the laws of Passover, this class will explore what it means to prepare for Passover as a means to teach about practicing kashrut at home.
