Center for Jewish Care Community Conversations: Learning Together
The Center for Jewish Care at JFS provides a home to engage in authentic and meaningful Jewish conversations. As a community, we have a rich history of studying our ancient texts to reveal values that can inform our beliefs and actions. While some individuals commit to personal study, our tradition also encourages studying in pairs or community (hevruta) recognizing that healthy discussion and even debate can illuminate alternate perspectives, new understandings, and innovative approaches to today’s challenges.
Together, we critically examine how the teachings of our heritage can be applied to modern issues, whether how to maintain our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, care for our loved ones and neighbors in need, or even fresh takes on current headlines. Each conversation welcomes our community into dialogue with thought-provoking community leaders, clergy, educators, therapists, and other national and local experts. The Center for Jewish Care invites you to study and learn with us.
