For congregants young at heart, but 21+
Thursdays, 1:00 p.m., Beginning Dec. 3
The Jewish people have always had a lot of questions about how we are supposed to practice and live according to Jewish law. However, the commandments do not directly respond to questions about electricity, modern medicine and other aspects of contemporary life. For centuries, our people have written questions and rabbis have responded with answers. Each week we will look at rabbinic responses from a wide range of Jewish perspectives focusing heavily on what Reform Judaism has to say. Come every week or drop in. Everyone is welcome.
In December, Sholom in the Home will be intimate Chanukah celebrations in congregants' homes on Sunday, Dec. 6, and Saturday, Dec. 12. Be sure to bring your menorah and candles!
Contact the Temple office for specific details and to learn about Sholom in the Home.

Race to Nowhere is a film that calls us to challenge current thinking about how we prepare our children for success. Race to Nowhere brings communities together to spark dialogue and galvanize change in America’s schools. Featuring the heartbreaking stories of students across the country who have been pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing, and the relentless pressure to achieve, Race to Nowhere points to a silent epidemic in our schools.
Through the testimony of educators, parents and education experts, it reveals an education system in which cheating has become commonplace; students have become disengaged; stress-related illness, depression, and burnout are rampant; and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired. Race to Nowhere has become the centerpiece of a nationwide, grassroots movement for the transformation of education.

Defying categorization, The Periodic Table is a pioneering work in its creative approach to memoir; it is the winner of the Royal Institution of Great Britain’s survey as the greatest science book ever written, and it is an invaluable record both of Levi’s life and of the experience of Jews in northern Italy.
