    This month, our Ethical Mindfulness group will wrap up the middah, character trait, of Rachamim, compassion, and will move on to honing our ability to develop seder, order, in our chaotic lives. Join Rabbi Sydney and behavioral therapist Marnie Levenson as we explore ways to increase mindfulness and create lasting positive change through the Jewish practice of Mussar. This monthly group will be intimate, skills-based, reflective and supportive and open to all, regardless of whether or not you were able to attend our first several sessions. If you are interested in more information, please email Rabbi Sydney

    This monthly program is for families - parents and kids all together. This year, we'll be structuring the program to have three breakout groups (one for parents, younger children and older children) to ensure that the P&P program is appropriate for families with children ranging from preschool through elementary. 

    We strongly encourage you to sign up for the series - we're trying to build a sense of community here, and the more you come, the more you'll get out of it. There is an option to sign up for individual sessions if you can't commit to the series.
