Ethics in Judaism:  A Yearlong Exploration

Join Rabbi Brown and Cantor Becker for a yearlong Adult learning series examining different aspects of Jewish Ethics.  Our clergy will co-teach the first session, and will then alternate sessions over the rest of the year.  We are particularly excited that this program is done in collaborative partnership with the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, and draws on the extraordinarily rich curricular materials that their world-renowned faculty developed.  Learners of all backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Although we strongly encourage year-long participation, we hope you’ll join us for as many (or as few) sessions as your schedule allows.  Please be in touch with Rabbi Brown or Cantor Becker if you have any questions.

All sessions will take place on Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:30 a.m. in person at the synagogue and via Zoom.
