Study with the Clergy

Olde Time Religion

Thursdays, June 13 and 20
11:00 am – Noon


If you could go back in time a few thousand years, you wouldn't recognize the religions of the world. None of them - including ours! Join Cantor Stuart Binder for a look at religion then and now, and how we got from there to here.


Ethical Wills 

Wednesdays, July 10 and 17
11:00 am – Noon


An ethical will, or legacy letter, is a way to share your values, blessings, life lessons, hopes and dream for the future with your family, friends and community. It does not distribute your material wealth but is a heartfelt expression of what truly matters in your life.  Join Rabbi Beal for an examination of this tradition throughout Jewish text – ancient and modern – and how you can use this custom to share values and blessings with those you love.


Shalom in the Home
Tuesdays, August 6 and 13
11:00 am - Noon


Jewish tradition has always held sacred the value of sh’lom bayit, peace in the home. Join Rabbi Adena Blum for stories of how our ancient rabbis made personal sacrifices for the sake of family harmony among the Jewish People.
