Join us for a three-part series where we will gather together to discuss who we are as a community. We will specifically focus on what Reconstructionism and Jewish Renewal are, the structure and deeper meaning of our Shabbat Services, and Shaarei Shamayim’s history, core beliefs, current practices, and long-term plans. We’ll also solicit your opinions and generate new ideas for various CSS committees to address. This is a great way to meet others from the congregation and bring up any questions you may have.
Sunday, May 19 – Who We Are and How We Came together This session will be led by CSS founding members, Jackie Kaplan, Jeff Spitzer-Resnick, and Mimi Goldberg. We will discuss why Shaarei Shamayim was founded and how the congregation has evolved over the past 20+ years, our core beliefs, how Shaarei Shamayim functions on an everyday basis, important policies, our long-term plans, and how to get more involved.
