Yasher Koach to Devi for receiving the Power of One award and Todah Rabah to Devi and Sophie Knapp for educating our 3rd-6th Graders last Shabbat about Mental Health.

Or Hadash U | 7:30 pm Thursdays, beginning February 21 for 5 Weeks
Ten Paths to God – Part 2: A new, online curriculum on Judaism and Jewish identity based on traditional sources and the teachings of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks (www.rabbisacks.org/TenPaths). It answers the three fundamental questions every reflective person will ask at some point in their life – Who am I? Why am I here? How then shall I live? Attendees will engage in an analysis in Hevruta (pairs), Habura (a study group) or in group discussions based on selected phrases and specific questions found in the materials. If time permits, supplementary sources will be used to take a deeper look at the week’s core concepts. NOTE: Part 2 (units 6 -10) is the second half of this course. Attendance in Part 1 (Units 1-5) is not a prerequisite to participate in Part 2. To fully participate in the classes, please RSVP here at least once so we can provide you with the link to the upcoming week’s materials. Share flyer.

BINGO at the Breman | 7:30 pm Wednesday, March 6
Bingo is back on the calendar and we hope you will mark yours to attend! Four weeks to start and four  reasons Seniors love Bingo [excerpts provided by Leisure Care]. 1) An Opportunity to be Social: First and foremost, Bingo is a social game. It brings people together from all over the community to physically be together in the same room, doing the same thing. Players can chat with each other while numbers are being called and, even for the most introverted seniors, striking up a conversation is made easier by having a common interest and a common goal – winning Bingo! RSVP here.
