History & Current Events in Israel: Motti will teach this class at the synagogue every other Wednesday at 10:30 AM. If you are interested in this class, please email Motti Locker at .

The Soul of Prayer: For many of us, when we come to services, whether that is twice a year or twice a month, wo pone the prayer book and are immediately faced with questions. What do these words mean? Why am I saying this? Why do I bow here? Why are Shabbat morning services 3 times as long as Shabbat evening services, which are 5 times as long as weekday evening services? Join Rabbi Gelman as we work our way through the prayer book. We’ll examine the origin of Jewish prayer, what the words mean, and the where the order and stage directions come from. Together, we’ll answer the question: why and how do we use a siddur to pray?

If you are interested in this class, please email Rabbi Gelman at We will be holding class twice a week: on Tuesdays at 4 PM on Zoom and on Thursdays at 10 AM in person. Both classes will cover the same material, so feel free to come to whichever class is most convenient. Classes begin the week of October 1st

Daf Shevui/Talmud Page of the Week: Always wanted a chance to learn a bit of Talmud? In this class we will be going through the first tractate of the Talmud, Berachot (Blessings). We will get a good variety of rabbinic legends, Jewish law, wit, and arguments. Lots and lots of arguments.

If you are interested in this class, please email Rabbi Gelman at The class is at 4 PM Thursday Afternoons on Zoom. Class will resume Thursday September 28th.
