    First Fridays will therefore be held on the first Friday of Adar, "Souper Shabbat" featuring a variety of hearty soups, salads and more with other Young Jewish Professionals over Shabbat Dinner!

  • DOUBLE THE STUDY! Did you know we offer two classes every Thursday? At the Thursday noon class we have learned subjects in many stages, beginning with the study of the applied Parsha, the entire book of Tanya, five selected Chassidic discourse of the Rebbe and most recently three chapters of different areas of Talmud discussing the financial obligation of neighboring condominiums, Shabbos cooking and Grace after Meals. The class will now focus on another area of Torah, halacha. We will start from the beginning of Shulchan Aruch Harav, Chapter 1. Join us!

  • DOUBLE TORAH ALERT! This Shabbat os "Parshat Shekalim" is the first of four special readings added during or immediately before the month of Adar. When the Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, each Jew contributed an annual half-shekel to the Temple. The 1st of Adar marked the beginning of the collection of the shekalim. In commemoration, the Torah reading of the Shabbat that falls on or before Adar 1 is supplemented with the verses (Exodus 30:11-16) that relate G-d's commandment to Moses regarding the first giving of the half-shekel.Links: The Shekalim Reading with commentaryPartnerTzedakah: Charity
