CORE Groups

At Central Synagogue

What are CORE Groups?

CORE groups are intentional, lay-led communities, whose members come together on a regular basis with the understanding that Jewish tradition and deep personal relationships add meaning to our lives. CORE groups are defined by their members’ commitment to engage in a process of transformational learning, reflection and relationship-building.

Why CORE Groups?

Central Synagogue’s CORE group strategy reflects our mission: to connect our members more deeply to one another, to our community, to Jewish tradition, and to God.

Participating in a CORE Group encourages us to:

Connect more deeply to each other and to our community.
Open our hearts and minds to new ideas, experiences and stories.
Relate the wisdom, tradition and values of Judaism to our everyday lives.
Examine who we are, who we want to be, and how we want to live.
