Lifelong Learning


All classes are held on WEDNESDAYS unless otherwise noted.

One Bay One Book–Discussion of The Betrayers and an additional class in advance. Date/Time: TBD.  Discussion led by Rabbi Gittleman and Dr. Melissa Kort.

ONE BAY ONE BOOK is Jewish Learning Work’s 3rd annual yearlong conversation connecting Bay Area readers through shared discussions and events centering around a single book for all Bay Area congregants. The book for 2014/2015 is The Betrayers by David Bezmozgis.

Calling 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
