How can we improve relations between Jews and Communities of Color? Join us for large and small group discussions of these and other pressing issues, led by Amy Leos-Urbel & Betsy Ames. Snow date Feb. 9

Book Discussion: "Anti-Semitism: Why is it Everyone's Concern" with Amy Leos-Urbel

Amy Leos-Urbel will lead this time to share our insights about reading the booklet: Anti-Semitism: Why is it Everyone's Concern?

This booklet is about how anti-Semitism is used to divide Jews from other groups -- and from each other -- and how to educate non-Jews to be our allies. It was written by Cherie Brown and Amy Leos-Urbel and published by Jews and Allies United to End Anti-Semitism.

Yizkor of Sukkot

Our harvest season closes with Sukkot, and this last day, called Shmini Atzeret, is also a day of remembering our deceased loved ones. Please come if you can help make the minyan for the Yizkor service, 10-12. Followed by a light kiddush.

Circle in the Sukkah

This pot-luck supper, Circle In The Sukkah, has a special theme of sharing our Jewish stories. The story circle is open to Jews and fellow travelers. Come share your and your families' story of escaping, reclaiming renewing, disconnecting and reconnecting to aspects of Jewish life, community and culture.

Vegetarian main dishes, sides, and desserts welcome.

We look forward to sharing our stories!
