Community@ Hevreh

Hevreh is a destination for Jewish learning. We offer courses and programs throughout the year for adult and intergenerational groups, both within Hevreh and for the broader Jewish community. In our learning we strive to educate, inform, challenge, and entertain, all the while keeping Torah at the center.

 

From Hebrew to discussion groups, this season is full of opportunities to connect with your Hevreh.

Creative Beit Midrash
January 10, 17, and 24, 2024

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Evening Learning: Lifequakes - Exploring our plot twists together, with Rabbi Hirsch

Building off of the insights from Bruce Feiler’s book Life is in the Transitions, and Rabbi Hirsch’s Rosh Hashanah sermon on the topic of Lifequakes, join with others from Hevreh for an exploration of how our lives twist and turn. This is a space for study and for sharing. Each session we’ll have the chance to study some texts around Jewish storytelling, and also tell our own life stories. These sessions are open to everyone at all stages of life.

Mondays, advance sign-up required.

 

Mussar Study Group

Mussar is a literature, a philosophy, a movement and a practice. Under the guidance of Rabbi Eric Gurvis, group members study and explore particular middot, soul traits, to enhance perspectives on daily life and deepen a sense of their spiritual selves. For more information please reach out to Rabbi Hirsch.

Creative Beit Midrash

In the Creative Beit Midrash, participants smash up Jewish texts with creative expressions to see what emerges. Together we study different themes that inspire us to paint, draw, write, sing, or make any other mode of expression. We also bring our creations to one another to mine for meaning. All are welcome, no experience required, just an open mind and excitement to join with others.

Monthly

TBD

Rosh Chodesh Plus

Rosh Chodesh (translated from Hebrew as new moon) is historically a group for women coinciding with the new moon. Any woman and those who identify as female who are Hevreh members are welcome to come to our gatherings.

We try to schedule programs around the time of the new moon, but they may coincide with upcoming holidays. Additionally, while our programs have a spiritual component, they can encompass a wide range of topics. Hence, the name Rosh Chodesh Plus.

Every Other Month, Wednesdays

5:30 PM

Men’s Book Club

The Hevreh Men’s Book Group typically meets every other month at 5:30 p.m. on a Wednesday at a local restaurant. Sometimes for the winter, the group meets online Discussing a diverse array of meaningful contemporary works of fiction and nonfiction selected by our members, we read within a range of genres. Some past books have included Caste, The Bluest Eye, and Under A White Sky, and we also occasionally have authors and special guests moderate our discussions. It is also a great way to meet others in the community. For more information, please contact Avi Dresner.
