Faith, Doubt and Certainty

Examine your relationship to tefillah (prayer) by exploring how tefillah was understood by the rabbis of our Midrashim. Through midrashic narratives, we will examine what the rabbis thought about the point of praying, whether believing is an essential component of prayer, and how the words of the siddur (prayer book) can aid or inhibit our experience of prayer. 

Led by Rabbi Judy Greenberg, this class will take place in the Library Beit Midrash from 10:30 to 11:15, ending in time to hear Rabbi Forester's D'var Torah in the sanctuary.  Next session: May 4.

Kabbalat Shabbat & Potluck Dinner

Welcome Shabbat with friends and delicious food at Beth Israel Center. The evening begins as we gather beginning at 5:00 over a nosh and a l’chayim. Services begin at 5:45 and are followed by a kosher-dairy potluck dinner. Because Shabbat begins earlier than begin services at this time of year, please bring potluck contributions between 5:00 and 5:15 on Friday evening or earlier in the week (when the office is open), whichever is more convenient. All are welcome!
