Preparing for the High Holy Days with Mishkan Hanefesh
September 14, 21, 28 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Pesach has the seder, Sukkot has the sukkah, and Hanukkah has the candles - but the High Holy Days have only prayer, which is one of the most challenging and complex of all modern Jewish observances. Join your friends in a conversation on the nature of prayer and its connection to spirituality as we explore the ins and outs of our new High Holy Day machzor, Mishkan Hanefesh, with our Rabbis.
For more information or to register for the class, please contact Edwinna at 904-733-7078 or by email.

Read Hebrew America
Do you regret never having learned to read Hebrew when you were a child? Have you forgotten the Hebrew you learned as a child and want a quick and easy refresher? For the third consecutive year, we will offer Read Hebrew America in October.
There are two six-week segments to Read Hebrew America. At the conclusion of the very first session, you will recognize some letters and vowels and be able to read a complete sentence. By the end of the six sessions, you will be reading short sentences and paragraphs from Mishkan T’filah. In the second six-week segment, you will improve your reading skills, build competence and confidence.
When you contact the office let us know if you are interested in attending a preliminary discussion on the course and experience some of the teaching methods used to make you a Hebrew reader.
