The Torah of Relationships
Wednesday, April 1, 6:45 p.m.

Love your neighbor as yourself (Ahavta rei-echa kamocha) is a major principle of the Torah. How we relate to and treat one another, what we do for others, the way we help one another - all these are significant measures of the Torah's vision of a fully lived Jewish life.  We all know these teachings, so why is it so hard to fulfill? Rabbi Rose will lead us through a study of Jewish texts and spiritual teachings in search of answers to this question, helping us to become more mindful, awake and present to our spouses, our friends, our families and even ourselves.  


Portland Jewish Explorers: 
Eat, Eat!  Nourishing Body and Soul
Sunday, April 19, 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Eating is one of the great Jewish traditions. Paula Jahn and Olivia Martino, dieticians and co-owners of Nourish Northwest, will lead kids in preparing a Gluten- free, vegetarian meal. Over our feast we'll discover how Judaism guides us in caring for body and soul by cultivating gratitude.
