During Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday, November 3, Rabbi Lev will give a talk titled "Justice, Justice Shall you Pursue: Activism in the Jewish Tradition". This talk will connect to the weekly Torah portion and focus on the unfettered pursuance of justice from the Jewish perspective.

Charry Service: 4th Grade Ashrei & Charry Appreciation Shabbat

The Charry Service provides a traditional, egalitarian service with a focus on learning.  Both women and men participate equally in our service, and we encourage and provide opportunities for participants to learn the language (Hebrew) and the skills (chants and tunes) that allow them to lead the prayers and to read from the sacred texts that make up the core of our service.  Our Rabbis and other guest teachers open up new perspectives on these texts and encourage discussion during our extended study period after the Torah is read.
