Am Haskalah offers a creative, participatory approach to Judaism, blending tradition with innovation

“What does it mean to join Am Haskalah? Member of what? As I see it, we are both a community and a congregation. A community is a network of relationships. You join it by taking part. The more you take part, the more you will build those relationships, the more connected you will feel, and the more our community will grow.

While the community is an informal network, the congregation is a formal organization. We have bylaws, officers, committees, employees, income and expenses. To be a member you have to fill out a form and pay your dues. Thecongregation provides the platform, the structure, in today’s parlance, the hardware. The community is the software, the spirit and the real soul. I believe that if you are going to be a member of this community, you have a responsibility at some point to join the congregation.

And if you are a member of the congregation, please be a part of this community.”

~ Cary Oshins, Past President



Congregation Am Haskalah has made the decision to go ENTIRELY ONLINE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. This is a very trying time for all and we will get through it as a community the best we can – even if that means staying away from each other.


As Administrative Director, Liz, is always available to answer any questions, provide Zoom tech support, or arrange for any support you may need. Please do not hesitate to reach out!


We have also just created a private, members-only Facebook group, and we encourage any Facebook users to join and post the things that are helping you through this self-quarantine.


All services will be broadcast on Zoom to the congregation.

The link can be found in your email newsletter “the Shofar” or you can email Liz at AmHaskalahDirector@gmail.com.
