Chai Mitzvah

In appreciation for generous underwriting by Rabbi Judy Chessin, Temple Beth Or’s Adult Education Committee (AEC) is delighted to announce the formation of a new Chai Mitzvah group.  Because Temple Beth Or has hosted previous Chai Mitzvah groups, the national Chai Mitzvah organization is waiving the cost of materials to individuals who join the group.  This means that you, personally, will pay nothing for materials.

What is Chai Mitzvah?: Chai Mitzvah is a personal Jewish journey to share with friends. Groups exist in 39 states and 6 countries. This new Chai Mitzvah group focuses on critical conversations (e.g., What is modern day idolatry? How do we reconcile faith in the presence of evil?)

Cost: $0

What is involved?: Reading a short overview of the topic (which AEC will send you) on your own and then participating in a group ZOOM discussion

When does the group meet?: first Thursday of the month, 7-8:30 p.m., starting Nov 4.  The group will meet once a month for 5 months.

How does the group function? Participants will be asked to take turns facilitating the discussion.  It’s easy — discussion questions along with related reading are sent to all (to review prior to each month’s meeting).

How do I get the materials?: Materials will be sent to you via email, after you register.  Kindly register by October 20. Contact for questions/more information.
