Community Jewish Events

Look no further for the latest general information on Jewish or Jewish-related events going on in and around the greater Bay Area!



Seeking God

  • Join us for a virtual three-part course entitled “Seeking God"

  • Tuesdays 1/12, 1/19, and 1/26 at 7:30pm

    • During worship services, we affirm our faith in God through time-honored prayers. Yet Judaism is a religion that encourages us to fearlessly challenge our inherited faith and to find our own meaning in the universe. Do you believe in God as Creator of the universe, rewarding good and punishing those who are wicked? Do you wonder whether God heals the sick?  Are there times you feel close to God and other times distant? On these three consecutive Tuesday nights we will engage virtually in exploring our faith.

    • The course is open for any adult to attend, and there is no fee. 

    • For Information how to participate, contact Rabbi Schulman at, or look for details in our 1/7/21 weekly email.
