Friday Noon Study Group

Friday, July 19, 12:00-1:00 

The publication, Sh’ma Now, hosted by the Jewish Forward magazine, curates a monthly distilled “conversation” bringing together several voices around a single theme. These voices cross the spectrum of Judaism — secular and religious, communal and non-partisan, engaged and striving. Participants in our study group will have an opportunity to join in this conversation.  Our focus is on ideas — their complexity and range, and how they inform action.

Last week, 12 participants took on the topic of:

God Is Process:  Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh | אֶֽהְיֶ֖ה אֲשֶׁ֣ר אֶֽהְיֶ֑ה 

We shared our opinions on whether we thought of God as a noun:  a static, concrete entity, a commander or senior partner with conscious oversight of human activity, or did we think of God as a verb:  a dynamic ongoing process that grows and evolves alongside us as we serve as agents of the world’s unfolding.

This week, July 19, we will discuss the Jewish tradition of

Making a Place Sacred:  Makom Kadosh | מָק֣וֹם קָדֹ֔שׁ

We invite you to explore several readings on this topic posted at:
and to join us for a discussion.

July 26:

Generosity of the heart:  N’div Lev | נְדִיב  לֵב


Our informal discussion group meets every Friday from 12-1, in the CBI Library.  All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise or attendance at previous Friday study group sessions.     If you have questions, please contact Jay Jacoby at
