Thinking Jewishly With Rabbi Dina Rosenberg

Join us this year as we explore contemporary issues through a Jewish lens based on the weekly parsha. Together we will “think Jewishly.” No background is required, and drop-ins are welcome as each week’s selection of material and discussion will be in English and stand on its own.

Classes meet on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. 

And join Arnold Sherman as he teaches the following classes on March 8 and March 15:

                 "Could I ever be a Nazi?  Never!"                                                                                                                             The Abandonment of the Jews 

Introduction into Judaism - Second Semester starts February 27 - Register Here

Join us as we continue to delve deeper into the Jewish practice, how to raise children in a Jewish home, the path to conversion, and much more!

With an intimate group, you will explore the fundamental concepts of Judaism, including holidays, life cycle events, meaningful prayer, and rituals of the Jewish faith. You’ll learn the “how” as well as the "why" of Jewish practices and uncover the approach to bringing Judaism into your daily life.

Students of all backgrounds are welcome, and no prior knowledge is necessary.
