Rabbi Message: December 17, 2015

December 27 will be an all out work day, with committee meetings, roving groups of organizers tackling room after room and a few fun and tasty surprises. 10-6 is the full day - come for all or part. See the calendar for the full schedule.

Our monthly practice group on Compassionate Listening continues on the first Thursday of each month at a new time 7:00-8:30PM. Our next session will be on January 7 in the temple library. The practice group is an open drop-in group with some review and some new practice each session. At January's meeting, we'll review core principles of CL and practice a listening technique called Facts, Feelings and Values.

Our beginner Hebrew class will restart on Thursday evening January 14-21 from 7:30 to 8:30PM. Folks who missed the fall classes are invited to come at 7:00PM for tutoring. We have texts for a few additional students. Please let me know if you plan to attend, rabbi@templeisraelgreenfield.org.

Our Tuesday afternoon Torah study group, 12:30-2PM continues in its sixth year! A mixed crew of Jews and allies meets together and plows through a few chapters of Torah each week, culling insights from each other. The study group is free and open to all. Drop in!

Many of our programs are free and open to all. You don't have to join to be part of things. You don't have to join to learn, or volunteer or daven/pray with us. But I invite you to join. I invite you to invest. I invite you to help us build our mission. Generous subvention is available for those of us with limited means. Please see our member page for other benefits and the application form.
