The Past and Future of American Judaism @ MultiPurpose Room
Jun 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

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.  Tuesday Nov. 29, Jan. 24, Feb. 28, Mar. 28, Apr. 25, June 6

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!

Torah Talk @ Sanctuary
Jun 10 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am

The Torah is a vast collection of stories, commandments, ritual practices, and ethical standards. It is meant to be studied and understood not only to connect us to our ancestors and traditions, but to guide us toward an ethical and spiritual life. Torah means learning. For many of us, understanding Torah is not easy. We may find the language confusing and the meaning difficult to grasp. Yet when we learn together, we are thrilled by the insights we glean and share. Update your calendar now and join us. Participants are encouraged to voice their thoughts, insights and interpretations. Dress is casual. Previous Torah study or Hebrew fluency is not required. Questions or for more information, contact Susan Trivers, Worship Committee Chair at worship@nvhcreston.org.
