Through a variety of educational pursuits, our members grow in soul and spirit through the sacred process of study and reflection on topics both modern and ancient.
From Yiddish film and klezmer to Indian delicacies of Cochin, India, and intricate papercutting, our members - and guests from the larger community - enjoy an array of cultural events limited only by our imaginations. Events take place at our synagogue, in parks and in public spaces, often in partnership with other venues and organizations. Artists, performers, speakers and teachers come to us from across the globe or across the street, and often from within our esteemed membership.
