This monthly discussion group is for anyone who has ever  wondered about life’s big questions. What are contemporary ideas of God? And does God listen? How should we be living our lives today? Will the Jewish world ever recover from the Shoah? How do we live authentically with real meaning?

The class is open to absolutely everyone and is designed to be thought provoking and accessible to all.
