Lifelong Learning

The mission and purpose of the Lifelong Learning is to plan and implement educational programs.  These programs offer educational opportunities for adult congregants of all age groups and all levels of Jewish learning.  While program topics vary widely, they will include a connection to Judaism, Jewish life, or issues of importance to Jews.

 Torah Study

…and Breakfast for the Hungry Hearted is held every Shabbat morning at 8:45AM in our Kolbo Room.

All are welcome, of any age, including beginners to Torah study. Sessions are led by Rabbi George, Rabbi Kramer, and by lay leaders. The best opportunity for ongoing in-depth discussion of Torah and related writings.

Please see our Calendar for dates.



rosh chodesh logoCalling all Shomrei Torah women:

Come and join our Rosh Chodesh women’s group. It is a custom for women to gather for celebration and sisterhood every month at the time of the new moon.  The meetings may be at a private home, or at an outdoor setting (under the actual moon!–weather permitting).

Each month will focus on a specific Jewish spiritual theme (from Kabbalah, mussar (Jewish ethical teachings), or a Biblical source).  We will meditate, chant, sing, dance, study, and discuss in order to deepen our connection to the sacred, to ourselves, to each other and to the community. We hope you will join us!


Please contact: Alissa Hirshfeld-Flores (certified Jewish Spiritual Director) at or Rabbinic Pastor Judith Goleman at
