The Past and Future of American Judaism @ Social Hall
May 23 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

We will be attending Confirmation Service and Dinner. Please RSVP to sara@nvhcreston.org

The American Jewish community as we know it was shaped primarily by waves of Eastern European immigration over a century ago. As each generation gains distance from those waves, the ideas, themes, cultures and practices of American Judaism will be different from those of the past.  This class will cover the origins of American Judaism and the trends shaping our future.

Led by Rabbi Michael G. Holzman

Mussar with Cantor Caro: Jewish wisdom and values in practice
Jun 9 @ 8:00 am – 9:15 am

Mussar is a Jewish system for personal growth, specifically in the realm of character trait refinement, helping individuals to find balance and strength in key inner traits that are essential for leading a fulfilling life. Each monthly session will be an exploration of this system through these character traits, studying text sources and considering out how to bring that into personal life and experience. No prior experience of knowledge needed; each month will be its own exploration, so feel free to come when you can!
