Pirkei Avot, one of the best-known and most-cited of Jewish texts, is a collection of succinct rabbinic statements on how to live a meaningful life. Join Jewish educator Lisa Lisser for five compelling sessions that will dive into the words of Hillel and Shammai, Rabbi Akiva, and many more, to explore how our tradition can guide us on ethics and interpersonal relationships.

We have been watching with horror the recent news of the callous and inhumane mistreatment of the “huddled masses” now gathered at our borders. The Talmud teaches us that if we fail to protest the actions of our fellow citizens, we become liable for their wrongs. In this moment, we as a faith community cannot afford to stand idly by while children are denied basic necessities. If you would like to support organizations on the front lines, here are two other actions you can take:
1. Donate money or miles to organizations that are doing work on the ground.
2. Take action.
We hope you will be moved to join us in standing up for our neighbors who are suffering at our borders.
Your tax-deductible contribution to our Annual Yom Kippur Appeal will provide for Central’s exceptional educational, community, and spiritual programs and help enrich the Jewish experience of our members and the community-at-large.
