May We Be Inscribed: The Next 50 Years

A Year-Long Chevruta

We know where we’ve been, let’s talk about where we are going!

Am Haskalah invites you to join a series of events exploring the future of American Judaism. From October to May, we will be hosting Continuing Education classes, Discussion Groups, an Open Mic Night and more! Open to ALL, to discuss, learn and grow.

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. The congregation 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

COVID-19 RESPONSE:

 

Am Haskalah will meet outdoors only

for the August 13th* Havdalah service.

(*each service’s status will be decided in the week prior.)

 
The most up-to-date information can always be found on our Calendar, or you can email our office.

 

RSVPs and proof of boosted vaccination are required for attending anything in person. Please send in advance.
 
 

Masks are required at all times, except for when eating (there will be Oneg).

 

We will be using the main sanctuary for some Friday night services, to better spread out.

(Look for our rainbow sign in the window to see which side of the building we’ll be in on that day.)

 
 

Zoom will continue for (nearly) everything.
