May We Be Inscribed: The Next Fifty Years

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

Congregation Am Haskalah invites you to join a series of events exploring the future of American Judaism.

From October through May we will be hosting Continuing Education classes, Discussion Groups, an Open Mic Night, and more!

A Year-Long Chevruta

In Jewish tradition, chevrutah is a form of study where two students work together to understand scripture, asking each other questions and challenging each other’s ideas.

Few of us have access to traditional learning any more, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still learn with and from each other.

As a Reconstructionist synagogue, we recognize that American Judaism as it is today, is not what American Judaism will look like for our future generations.

What might it look like? What dangers will we face? What opportunities? What our are hopes and how can we acheive them? What are our fears, and how can prepare for them?

This is the subject of our chevrutah.

Help Us Celebrate

Inscribed was partly inspired by Am Haskalah’s 45th anniversary. We will end our chevrutah in May with a 45th Anniversary Celebration, including a rabbinic panel discussion pulling together past, present, and future, and an auction.

Open to All

We invite all Jews and Jewish organizations of the Lehigh Valley to join us in this chevrutah. Allies are also welcome to get involved.

Would you be interested in taking part in a discussion group? Leading a discussion group? Sharing your music at an open mic night?

Would your organization like to put on your own Inscribed events or partner with Am Haskalah to create larger events?

We love to have you!
