Programs, Classes & Events 

In addition to weekly Shabbat services, our community hosts regular programs and special events related to Jewish learning and Torah writ large. Past classes have included our Aleph Bet Intensive, courses with Dr. Justin Sledge on subjects like The Biblical Prophets and Jewish Apocalypticism, programs on ritual facilitation, community organizing and activism, and more.

Two light-skinned people in masks and glasses - one younger person with shaggy brown hair and overalls, and one older person with longer blonde hair and an orange sweatshirt - are seated at a table, studying Hebrew.

Upcoming Events:

Mondays, August 21 - Sept 11

"On Repentance & Repair" Reading Group

In preparation for the upcoming High Holidays, Rabbi Alana and Emily Silver will lead a reading group on On Repentance and Repair: Making Amends in a Unapologetic World by Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg. This book explores the Jewish concept of teshuvah to provide “a crucial new lens on repentance, atonement, forgiveness, and repair from harm — From personal transgressions to our culture’s most painful and unresolved issues.”

Kids Shabbat / Torah Story Time

3rd Shabbat of the month, 10 AM - 12 PM


Each month, we have a special "playful and prayful" Kids Shabbat service, held at the same time as adult morning services. Parents are welcome to drop their kiddos off and daven in the main service, or stay for the duration. All ages welcome! Tailored for 4-7 year olds, with bite-sized doses of traditional liturgy, singing and music-making, a bit of Jewish education, and of course, story time! 

T'chiyah has been a second family to me, and my spiritual home.  The outpouring of friendship, community and care within the T'chiyah body is like nothing I have experienced elsewhere. It is a source of pride for me that I can include myself among its members.
