Rabbi Wilensky is teaching a new class at the Jewish Day School on Tuesday mornings for parents on “How to Use the Parsha as a Tool to Open Lines of Communication With Your Child”. This class begins at 8:10 a.m. (after drop off at the JDS) and ends at 8:40 a.m. Coffee and light refreshments are served.

Join our weekly Tuesday class with Rabbi Wilensky held in the shul's board room at 8:30 p.m. on "Chovot Halevavot: Nurturing the Inner Feelings of a Jew". This class is open for both men and women and no prior knowledge of Jewish texts is necessary. The class is studying the classic work of Rabbi Bachya Ibn Pekudah of 11th century Spain which focuses on cultivating the thoughts and emotions of self-reflection, trust, belief, humility, devotion, and love.
