Bring a dish to share and an open heart. Email shalom@chochmat.org to join our Families WhatsApp group to connect with other families, support each other, and learn about family events. 

Our HeartSpace circle will meet after services (8:45pm) in the Chochmat courtyard for open-hearted folks in their 30s(-ish) to make new friends and soulful connections. Email shalom@chochmat.org to join our HeartSpace WhatsApp group for more info and future events. This week’s topic: Sex, Love, and Judaism. Join Jericho Vincent, Spiritual Leader of Temple of the Stranger in Brooklyn, for a no-holds-barred conversation about what Jewish ancestral wisdom has to teach us about navigating romantic love. How do we make sex sacred? What is divine sexuality? Is there such thing as a soul mate? What makes a relationship kosher? From pleasure to polyamory, no topic is off the table. Bring an open heart.


Event will start promptly at 7pm — please arrive a few minutes early to check in and be seated.
