    Sources Through Srugim: Join Rabbi Josh for TV and Torah on Wednesday nights. We'll be watching the hit Israeli TV show “Srugim”, the Israeli version of “Friends.” Unlike in “Friends,” the characters in Srugim need to navigate relationships and family dynamics within the bounds of halacha, traditional Jewish law, and we will explore their challenges and successes in balancing their religious and personal lives. We will start with a mini-class to prepare for that day’s episode with Rabbi Josh at 7:00, before breaking to watch the episode. We’ll regather for a brief discussion of the episode after watching. Beginning at 8:15, for those who would like to stick around, we will have a halachic discussion concerning the episode with Rabbi Josh, Rabbi Rebecca Schatz of Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles and members of her congregation.

    COVID & the Jewish Community
    Sunday, Jan 31st 10:30a to 12:00p
    The pandemic in which we live has generated new halacha. Join Rabbi Deborah Silver and Rabbi Josh Pernick for three sessions based around the most current approaches to COVID via Zoom: Jan 17th - If I Am Not For Myself... We will explore whether each of us is obligated to take the vaccination when offered. Does Jewish law provide we must do so, or is it up to the individual to decide? This session will be co-led by Rabbi Gary Gerson and Dr. Carol Gerson, along with Rabbi Josh and Rabbi Silver. Jan 24th - If I Am Only For Myself... We will address the challenging question of triage. Who should get the vaccine first, and why? What are the criteria for deciding? Jan 31st - If Not Now… How should we mark the moment of getting the vaccine? We will explore kavvanot and blessings old and new.
