Check out our upcoming Book Brunch selections! 

Adult Education: Wednesdays at 4pm (est)

We are finishing up Derech Hashem/The Way of God.

 Composed in Amsterdam (c.1735 - c.1745 CE). Derech Hashem is a classic work of Jewish philosophy. It is a systematic examination of God's regulation of the world, and it discusses God’s purpose in creation, Divine providence, prophecy and prayer.

Join us for our next class:  Mesillat Yesharim begins Wednesday, February 17th.  You have time to buy the book (Torah Classics version), begin reading and join us for further discussion. RSVP at

Of all creatures, only the human being was created incomplete in the sense that one must pay conscientious attention over the course of a lifetime to develop and refine one's character and personality. In Jewish tradition, this development takes on a sacred dimension, and one of the classic guides to outline a clear, progressive path toward spiritual perfection is The Path of the Just.


The earliest known manuscript version was written in 1738, and begins with an essential essay on Man's Duty in this World. The author methodically charts a course of personal growth like climbing the rungs of a spiritual ladder that ultimately leads to true humility and holiness. (Readers will notice the male/female binary pronoun usage as substitutes for God and Humanity. This will be very jarring to some. I invite any such Reader to consider that character development is not gender specific.)


Mask-making via Zoom Sunday, February 21, 1-4pm

We may miss celebrating together but let's not miss the fun of Purim. Let's gather on Zoom and create our own masks and perhaps have a virtual Purim parade.


You may draw or print out a character then get what you need, scissors, markers or paints and glitter if you choose. It's up to you. Then you'll need cardboard to mount the mask, be sure to cut out the eyes! Elastic is in short supply so you can use ribbon or yarn to wear your mask or a stick to hold it up to your face.


This program will be led by member Amy Kaplan, an accomplished artist among her many other talents.
