Changing the World From the Inside Out: Adult Ed Series @ Someone's home or a library meeting room! TBD
Feb 22 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

We’ll continue our High Holiday theme in a four session adult ed series, based on the book from which our this year’s theme emerged,  Changing the World From the Inside Out: A Jewish Approach to Personal and Social Change by David Jaffe. We’ll  also draw from other sources on Judaism and Social Justice. What are our responsibilities as human beings and as Jews to address the many forms of injustice in our society? How do our inner lives support our capacity to bring positive change to our world,  and how do we know what is our  part? What is the relationship between inner spiritual growth and the social action we take on?

Take a look to learn more about the book  here, and if you’re interested in particpating in what I hope will be an engaging combination of discussion, learning, self-reflection, and community building, please send an email to rabbisimchazevit@gmail.com to receive further information.

Session One: Sunday 1/5 10 am – 11:30 pm

Remaining Sessions on Shabbat afternoons 1/25, 2/8, and 2/22 from 1-2:30

There will be a fee of 72.00 for the four sessions, and we’ll meet four times in January/February. We’ll need a minimum of six particpants for the class to be a “go”. Join Us!

New Member/Village Shabbat @ Members' homes -See SignUp below!
Feb 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

New members, those interested in possibly joining,  and Havurahniks who have been with us for a while will gather together in host homes on both 2/28 and 3/6, giving everyone an opportunity to get to know each other in a more intimate atmosphere than our larger Shabbat potlucks allow.

New members are first invited to Havurah host homes, and then we open up the opportunity to host – or be hosted – to as many Havurahniks as we have space for based on the number of members who sign up as hosts.

 It’s the warmth of our presence with each other, of our homes, and our tables that will make this a really special Shabbat for our community.

If we can add you as a host, please email rabbisimchazevit@gmail.com as soon as possible, and let her know how many guests you can include.

SIGN UP HERE TO PARTICIPATE!  Please don’t be “shy” about signing up to host or be hosted by people you don’t yet know well – that’s the fun and the purpose of this special Shabbat! it’s an opportunity to make new connections within our community!

JRA Food Packing & Delivery @ JRA Warehouse
Mar 22 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us at the Jewish Relief Agency’s warehouse to pack food boxes and deliver them to needy families. This is a fun activity appropriate for the entire family!

Go to the JRA website to see your options as to times you wish to help on each delivery date: while you can volunteer in whatever way works best for you, we generally plan for Havurah members to meet by where bagels are served so we can have a bite and then get in line together to pack boxes before we head out for deliveries. Please RSVP for a delivery route through the JRA website ahead of time!
