Jewish Wisdom for Life’s Great Questions

Thursday evenings beginning February 22nd with Rav Daniel at Beth Am | 6:30 PM – 8 PM 

Our tradition provides us with a record of debate and discussion from Jews in every generation going back to Abraham of thinkers who were applying Jewish wisdom to their everyday dilemmas. Join in the conversation as we listen to (and sometimes argue with) Jewish sources on everything from that “10-day gratitude challenge” your cousin is posting about, to whether protest or prayer is more effective in making political change. You’ll see that ancient wisdom can help us tackle the very questions that modern life presents to us. This class will be held at Beth Am and Zoom for those unable to attend in person.

חוג קריאה – Chug Kriah, a Hebrew reading circle

Saturday, February 24th | 12:30 PM | Beth Am Room Aleph/Bet

Join us for our first informal get-together for those interested in reading and discussing Hebrew texts (from poetry to the news to whatever else we decide on) in a supportive environment. The texts will be at intermediate level, but you will get something out of the discussion if you can sound out Hebrew words. All are welcome to sit in and participate at their comfort level, and translations will be provided.

Questions? Email Zack Berger.

Hospice 101: The Wonders of Hospice

Sunday, February 25th | 10:30 AM | Rav Daniel’s Study

A great opportunity to learn more about hospice services, including those at Gilchrist. We will answer questions about hospice such as: What is hospice care? What types of support are provided by Gilchrist? Who qualifies for and how do I start the process of getting care from Gilchrist? Can I afford hospice? Today’s Gilchrist is more than hospice we help people live every moment!

This is the first program in our upcoming Gilchrist Educations Series. Follow the link below to learn more. RSVP HERE!
