Chai Mitzvah Journey

Third Fridays, 1:00-2:15 pm (Sept. 2019-Aug. 2020)


Chai Mitzvah is a national program combining informal study, ritual, and social action to create a meaningful personal Jewish journey. All people are welcome, no Jewish knowledge or observance is assumed! 

Together we'll deepen our engagement in Judaism through:

Independent study: choose a topic to explore from a Jewish perspective
Ritual: choose a ritual or spiritual practice to incorporate into your life
Social Action: choose a mitzvah (act of service) to carry out within the Jewish community

Pre-registration required.


What subjects will we explore?

Adult Rites of Passage
Tzedakah and Philanthropy
Individual and Community
Interpersonal Relationships
Mindfulness and Conscious Living
Adding New Insights to the Passover Seder
Israel and the Jewish Spirit
Judaism and the Environment
Death and Loss
The Arc of the Holidays
