Saturday

Weekly Common Read – Discussion Hour
Saturdays, 11:00am-12:00pm

Look for a short reading, posted on Mondays. Something uplifting, and thought provoking that we can ponder throughout the week and then discuss together on Saturdays via Zoom.

Check out this week’s Common Read selection here!

We hope that you will join us in taking this time to dive deeper into our spiritual lives. In the Jewish sacred reading tradition of Havruta, it is said that between you, me, and the text, that is where the truth can be found.
