Kehillah Groups

building community and connection at rodef sholom

What are Kehillah groups?
Kehillah 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. 
By participating in Kehillah groups, we will endeavor to connect more deeply to each other and to our community; open our hearts and minds to new ideas, experiences and stories; bring the wisdom, tradition and values of Judaism to our everyday lives; and examine who we are, and who we want to be.
Kehillah groups reflect our mission: to connect our members more deeply to one another, to our community, to Jewish tradition, and to the world.
If you're interested in starting a Kehillah Group, contact Moji at [email protected].

Mussar Circles

We apply the ethical teachings and mindfulness practices of the Jewish Mussar tradition to examine our daily habits of living and how we can experience our best selves more often. Through mussar wisdom practice we will connect more deeply to ourselves and each other.
