Weekly Programming


The QUest

Our signature Monday night program that goes against the grain in teaching the fundamentals of Judaism. The Quest throws the baton to YOU! Looking internally to find those questions that bother you and questions that come out of more questioning. Rabbi Jack alongside signature other staff, delve deep in text and concepts of Torah while probing interesting thought-provoking questions surrounding Jewish identity and thought.


Nishma is a two-part program delving deep into the sources of Torah. Climb Sinai, the first part of the evening is an interactive, team effort, hiking up the mountain that is the Torah, verse by verse, testing the sturdiness of each step. In conjuction, the second part of Nishma is called the Mitzvah Lab – which is a group of people working together to experiment and experience the power of God’s mitzvot.
