We are proud to announce our new partnership with the New Kehilah of Ramat Aviv in Tel Aviv!
Our partnership is an opportunity for us to learn more about the Masorti movement in Israel, which is the same as Conservative Judaism in the US. The New Kehilah is an active Masorti community, and Rabbi Jeff Cymet is a leader in the Masorti movement.
We kicked off our partnership this past Sunday with our first joint session on Preparing for the High Holidays. Coming up we will have other learning sessions, a joint N'tivot program, and social gatherings.
