Our Approach

Do you know what the fundamental writings of Judaism are?  Since there will be references to Jewish writings throughout this website, it would be worthwhile to familiarize yourself with many of them . Most of the material, including some history from about 2000 years ago, comes from notes taken from Rabbi Joseph Telushkin’s book, Jewish Literacy.

Once you have completed that “assignment”, you might want to read some of the moral and ethical principles, values and laws found in these writings. Rabbi Joseph Telushkin refers to many of them as the “essence of Judaism”.

 

Then take the “Evaluating Your Jewish Life” Self-Assessment exercise which is a useful tool when considering the sources of your level of satisfaction and dissatisfaction with your current involvement with Judaism.

 

Now let’s get to work!!!!!

 

What issue would you like to address?

 

Is it a personal issue?

Are you interested in alternative ways to celebrate the holidays ?

Would you like to learn how to organize a Havurah  – a small non-institutional group with which to celebrate holidays and study together?

Would you like to create a dynamic Jewish Children’s Education  program?

Would you like to plan aBar/Bat Mitzvah ?

            Would you like to plan a Jewish or an Interfaith Marriage ?

             Are you a lawyer who is dissatisfied with your career?

 

Is it a community issue?

Would you like to learn more about and/or work with others to design a targeted Social Action Project ?

Would you like to discover worthwhile organizations to which to contribute financially or to which to give  Tzedakah?

 

Is it a global issue?

Do you want to learn more about and/or work with others in a project to help end the conflict in Iraq?

Do you want to examine Israel/Palestine issues in the light of Jewish ethical and moral teachings, principles and laws?

            Do you want to get involved in organizations taking action to try to end the Israel/Palestine conflict?
