Do I need to believe in God to be Jewish? What happens after we die? Where is God in times of tragedy? How do I rest when I have no time?
12 Jewish Questions is a learning community for adults – Jewish and non-Jewish – who have questions about Jewish identity, beliefs, culture, and customs. It’s an environment to discover (and rediscover) the relevance of Judaism in our lives.

Ever felt the need to shout “PLEASE!” “WOW!” or even “THANK YOU!” during these long and dark pandemic days?
How about the urge to seek guidance or just scream into the abyss? This class is a chance to explore how Judaism can help us confront those feelings or urges. Prayer is not just about our relationship to or with a Higher Power, but also with ourselves. Each week we’ll focus on a different prayer and theme, culminating in a strong sense of connection.
Mondays at 8:00 pm on Zoom starting February 15
