Lag B'Omer Unity BBQ
Each year on Lag B'Omer Jews get together and share a moment of unity. It is the day that a great plague came to a halt, one that was attributed to disunity. As a response to that we join together each year a one family, one community, one people. Join us for a delicious fun BBQ!

Torah Talks - Head in the Clouds, Feet on the Ground
The Deepest Connection Is the Simplest One Is it, “I love you, therefore I am committed to our relationship”? Or is it, “I am committed to our relationship, therefore I love you”? The man who single-handedly brought kabbalah to the world and burned fields with his eyes, yet was simultaneously very down-to-earth, shines a light on this important question.

Judaism Is Not about Spirituality; It's about Life A six-week cruise with five-star accommodations, all expenses paid, plus free gifts. While that sounds like a terrific bonus package, it’s hardly what you would expect in return for leading a pious life. One would expect promises for spiritual delights and G-dly pleasures. Well, Judaism has a radical idea about what religion means. Come discover what it is.

Total Surrender At the pinnacle of inspiration and intimacy with the Creator, what comes next? More inspiration? No. Letting go. When the ego loses its sense of identity and is absorbed in its greater purpose, it is, paradoxically, best suited to appeal for its needs.
