Building Bridges


Finding common ground for us to come together for the sake of the good and holy. 



Clergy in Conversation

Wednesday at 12:00 PM, April 28 on Facebook or Streamspot

Join Rabbis Daniels, Geffen, Greene, and Cantor Goldstein as they discuss compelling topics of our time.


As we prepare for Yom Ha’Shoah and Yom Ha’atzmaut, we study with a great scholar and
accessible teacher, Professor Paul Liptz. He will join us the day before each observance, to deepen our learning and meaning for both of these holidays.


PAUL LIPTZ, a social historian, taught on the Tel Aviv University faculty for 40 years, taught graduate students at the Hebrew Union College, Jerusalem for 25 years, and taught officers and non-commissioned officers in the Israeli army. Professor Liptz’s main interests are History of the Yishuv [Pre-State], the Modern State of Israel and Arab Women and Nationalism in the Middle East, and he taught modern Jewish history, Israeli society and the contemporary Middle East to Reform and Conservative rabbinic,
cantorial and education students. Paul is an engaging teacher and has taught NSCI groups in Glencoe and in Israel. Paul was born in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and came as a volunteer to Israel one day before the Six Day War on June 4, 1967. He stayed in Israel, married Brenda and they have 4 children and 11 grandchildren.

Give Peace a Chance with Rabbi Daniels

Tuesdays at 12:00 PM - April 13, 20, 27 on Zoom

As Jews we dream, pray, and strive for peace, but what would true peace really look and feel like? Join Rabbi Daniels to explore the concept of Shalom (“Peace”) in Jewish tradition, and come together with others to commit to pursuing peace for all people.
