Join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays at noon for this great chance to connect virtually in-person with Central’s clergy team. A different member of our clergy team—or a special guest!—will share a favorite text, a new piece of music or arrangement, answer questions, or even lead a short cooking segment.
Tuesday, October 20: Join Rabbi Sarah Berman as she welcomes rabbinical student, activist, and educator Andrew Mandel to talk about his work around justice in the Jewish community. He will introduce us to his new app, Tzedek Box, and a new holiday he is hoping Jewish communities will embrace, Yom haTzedek.
Thursday, October 22: Stay tuned for a special surprise guest!
To join us online for this program, simply visit Central Synagogue’s Facebook page.
From: 1:00 pm - 2:00pm
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought major changes to our lives—sheltering in place, physical distancing, new routines—and increased concerns about receiving the medical care we would need and want if we become seriously ill. In these uncertain times, one thing we can control is who will speak for us if we become unable to speak for ourselves. It is more essential than ever that the important people in your life understand what matters most to you should medical decisions need to be made on your behalf.
Join Rabbi Nicole Auerbach and Howard Sharfstein, Coordinator of What Matters initiative at Central Synagogue and former President of the Board of Trustees, on Tuesday, June 23 at 1:00pm for a webinar where we’ll review these important topics and give you the information you need to make your choices known, including walking you through the process of designating a health care proxy. This event is free and open to the public.
Today more than ever we rely on you to support our educational, community, and spiritual programs that are so important to Central members and the Jewish community-at-large. If you are able, please support our Annual Yom Kippur Appeal today with a tax-deductible contribution.
