We encourage you to contact our rabbi to further your Jewish education. 

Foundations of Judaism

Rabbi Deena and Rabbi Sam are excited to offer a comprehensive five-week course on Jewish values. Taught in an informal seminar style with a focus on text study, we will explore the resonance of core Jewish values for our lives today in the twenty-first century. Through open conversation and dialogue, we’ll dive into topics including gratitude, generosity, belonging, and more. The course is open to all, no Jewish background necessary. Register here.
