Upcoming Events At A Glance...

Learn to Read Prayerbook Hebrew

Our summer Hebrew learning series with Anne Hartheimer will run on Thursday, July 25-August 22, 6:30-8:00 PM. If you are interested in joining this class, please let us know ASAP so we will be able to order a book for you in time for the first class!

Are you curious about Hebrew? Do you want to be able to follow along in services by reading the Hebrew? Or maybe you want to know what is really being said in the Torah. Take the first steps this summer--join our five week Hebrew class.

Cost: $50 for members, $75 for non-members. If you are able, we appreciate an additional $10 to cover the cost of the textbook, which will be yours to keep.

Shabbat Gathering @ The Arbors

A group of volunteers is forming to make sustained connections with Jewish elders residing at the Arbors. The plan is to meet 2nd and 4th Fridays at 10:30 to speak together, enjoy grape juice and challah and perhaps share memories of shabbat and anything else we wish to discuss. 

The meeting place will vary but the Shabbat Gathering will be posted on the Arbors schedule.

We look forward to these rich interactions. Please email to be added to the list for reminders before visits.

The money is for their family shelter which serves refugees who cross the border at Tijuana, Mexico, a Very large and crowded border area.  For more info or to make a donation:
