Chochmat Community Connections

Do you want to deepen your community and spiritual connections?

Join us as we gather in members’ homes to share food and learning, meet new friends and see old ones, connect to Torah and the wisdom of our tradition, and strengthen the bonds of community.

We will explore the quality of Kavod – Honor – with texts, conversation and reflection.

All who care about our community and spiritual connection are encouraged to participate. This is an opportunity to build and deepen your ties within the Chochmat HaLev Community.

Attend any one of the 6 gatherings between June 10 through July 15th.

Sign up for the one you can attend here. We look forward to seeing you there!
