Congregational Learning

The ideas and values that connects us as a community, individually and collectively, are transmitted from one generation to the next. Engagement through learning, experiencing and doing together not only adds meaning and value to our individual lives, but is a source of richness for our community. Our goal, building on the successes of the past year and in response to the expressed interests of our community, is to provide varied, intellectually stimulating and engaging learning opportunities geared towards congregants of all ages looking for cultural, educational, social and spiritual experiences.   We are excited to be offering a wide variety of opportunities related to our theme for the year and many ways to participate in Rabbi Grife’s “Chai Club Challenge”.  Please join us!!
