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.

Jewish Journeys

Monthly, time TBD [Zoom}


Prepare for conversion or an adult b'mitzvah with this year-long intensive online course involving lecture, discussion, independent study, personal practice and chevruta (partnership) learning.

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.
