I’m sure you have heard it before, in one way or another: be a lifelong learner. The reasons to do this are myriad: It keeps you young, It helps you navigate complex circumstances, It makes you a more interesting person, It ensures that you keep up with changing technology and communications, etc. I think the best reason is that it is just plain fun!

Luckily, there are some wonderful opportunities coming up for those who agree with me. Read on to find out how to get involved:

In Our Own Backyard:

We all know that Judaism is filled with words of wisdom for people from every walk of life. But, how often do we really slow down enough to appreciate how impactful that wisdom can be in our own lives? Beginning in January 2020, the Greenspon Center offers everyone an opportunity to do just that.

Rabbi Judy Schindler invites you to come out to the Selwyn Pub for study and socializing. Bring a friend, grab a glass of iced tea or wine, and enjoy learning more about Torah Wisdom and ways in which it can touch and lift our lives.
