WEEKLY: Thursday Torah Study Zoominyan

Our weekly Zoominyan is a place for anyone interested in studying Torah to pray, share gratitude, and examine the weekly Parsha in an open, warm, and encouraging online community. We welcome all levels of knowledge and people of all ages and backgrounds. This weekly Torah Study is lay-led and includes the Healing prayer and Mourner's Kaddish. 

Join us every Thursday morning at 10:00 am via this Zoom link (Passcode: THURSDAY)

WEEKLY: Kvetch & Kvell Crafting

A craft and chat group that meets via Zoom. Participants bring some kind of hand work, such as quilting, knitting, sewing, costume design, mending, collage, etc., and we spend an hour working on our projects and chatting. It is a very welcoming group and aims to provide a pleasant, easy atmosphere where people can get to know each other. The name Kvetch and Kvell was intended to imply that anyone is welcome to share troubles and frustrations, or to share positives from their and their families’ lives.

Join us every 2nd and 4th Monday at 4:00 pm via this Zoom link (Passcode: KVETCH)

QUARTERLY: Considering God Salon

For over 12 years, member-led discussions intimately explore our range of views about God, including secularism/atheism, spirituality, meaningful prayer, language and metaphor, the role of women in Judaism, beliefs about the “soul,” Jewish heretics, death, and more. Our Salons deepen our connection to Judaism and to each other. Co-chairs are Betsy Strausberg and Robin Roth. Explore our calendar or subscribe to our newsletter to receive news about future Salons.
