WHC Connections

WHC Connections is Washington Hebrew’s new small group program. It’s member-initiated and member-led.

Capped at around 15 members, each WHC Connections group will meet regularly over 3-6 months. Groups may be organized by demographic, topic, or interest area.

Open prayer book with hebrew on the pages

Haftarah Study Group

Every Shabbat afternoon an informal group of WHC members gets together on Zoom to discuss the Haftarah for that week. We begin with a read-through in English and continue sharing questions, answers, and opinions.

No prior familiarity with either the Haftarah or Hebrew is necessary. This group meets only on Zoom, and a link to join the conversation is usually sent out Friday night.

Saturdays, from 1:00 – 2:00 pm on Zoom

Sunday mornings starting at 9:45 (leaving from JBSC) beginning Sunday, October 23

Are you a business owner, executive, business development leader, or aspiring entrepreneur? Join Networking for the Small Business Community!

Led by WHC members, for other Temple members, this group will foster connections among business leaders within the congregation. At monthly get-togethers, you’ll have opportunities to learn, share strategies, strengthen relationships within the WHC community, and grow your business.

We are working to form additional groups in the coming months for challah bakers, people with disabilities and their family members, and divorced women.
