JCCH Happenings


Sage Wisdom:  Pirke Avot with Barbara Paris
Thursdays at 10:00 am

What did leading Rabbis two thousand years ago teach about living an ethical life, becoming a good friend, developing humility, learning the qualities of patience and forgiveness? What were the lives like of these men of wisdom and how did their life experiences inform their teachings? How can we use their practical, spiritual and wise advice to change our own lives today? Explore Pirke Avot (The Ethics of Our Fathers) with Rabbinic Associate Barbara Paris. We will be using Sage Wisdom, the new translation and commentary by Rabbi Irving (Yitz) Greenberg which will be available for purchase from the JCCH office. Other commentaries will be looked at as well.

Beginning Hebrew
Thursdays at 11:15 am

Would you like to learn to read Hebrew? Or have you forgotten the Hebrew you learned for your bar/bat mitzvah? Would you like to be better able to follow services?

Join with fellow JCCH members and learn — or re-learn — Hebrew in a small, supportive, fun environment. Rabbinic Associate Barbara Paris will begin with the Hebrew alphabet eventually moving to reading essential prayers and learning the melodies.

Free and open to all. Please RSVP to info@jcch.org.

Please Note: If you are interested in learning to read Hebrew but not available at this time, please let us know.
