Did I mention that we are committed to providing accessible experiences, so our programs are free. Meaningful donations of any amount by those who value this concept are most welcome and appreciated- it’s what fuels the work.
All are welcome. That means you, your Jewish and non -Jewish friends, and family. Everyone who would like to participate in the exploration of ancient Jewish texts and rituals made relevant today, anyone wanting to benefit from the wisdom of the ancient sacred wisdom.

The questions of ethical living today...
...are answered with clarity in Jewish sacred texts.
We ought to:
treat one another as being created in the image of the Divine,
not stand idly by the blood of our brother,
recognize that we were once strangers and immigrants,
work for redemption,
have faith and cultivate hope,
take time for self-reflection and make amends,
establish a fair justice system,
lift up gratitude,
repair, rebuild, and renew,
care for the stranger the widow and orphan,
respond to others' needs with active presence,
act justly, love mercy and love humbly.
These values guide our actions.
