From our expansive Summer programming to our regular adult learning classes and discussion groups, there is always something going on at Hevreh.
Make sure to check out all of the upcoming services and events scheduled!
The following are some of our regular offerings:
Creative Beit Midrash
Started during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Creative Beit Midrash is a gathering of artists, writers, musicians, and those who appreciate the arts. Co-created and co-led by Rabbi Hirsch and congregants, the Creative Beit Midrash blends study, meditation, and the presentation of our own art to explore and express our spiritual journeys.
This year, the Creative Beit Midrash is focusing on the art and culture surrounding Jewish holidays. They meet for an extended Saturday morning Shabbaton in the run up to one of our holidays. For 5783, the Creative Beit Midrash is meeting from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM on:
December 17 - Chanukah
March 11 - Purim
April 1 - Passover
May 20 - Shavuot
Additionally, the Creative Beit Midrash also meets periodically for more informal Studio Sessions, during which members explore art techniques, chat about their creative process, and share triumphs and challenges in their own journeys.. It’s a great way to get inspired, learn something new, and meet some wonderful people! All are welcome. No specific arts background is necessary. Come get inspired today!

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.
Men’s Book Group
The Hevreh Men’s Book Group meets every other month at 5:30 p.m. on a Wednesday at Aegean Breeze restaurant in Great Barrington. In the Winter months, the Book Group often meets by Zoom. The group discusses a diverse array of meaningful contemporary works of fiction and nonfiction selected by our members, who are also known as "The Saganaki Boys” in honor of the flaming cheese appetizer they always order at the restaurant. Past books include Caste, The Bluest Eye, and Under A White Sky. Occasionally, authors and special guests join to moderate the discussion.
