Artwork Created by Nahalat Shalom's B'nai Mitzvah, Cheder and Gan Students

Hiddur Mitzvah is a Jewish principle that teaches us that we should not only perform the mitzvot, the commandments, but also carry them out in beauty. As part of the preparation for their B'nai Mitzvah, Nahalat Shalom encourages students to include a creative projects in addition to the D'var Torah, Torah chanting and participation in the Shabbat service. Students have performed music, written poetry and created visual arts projects with papercutting, fabric and digital arts.

Many of our students work with Dena Palley who shares with them her love of papercutting, a traditional Jeiwsh folkart that almost was lost during the Holocaust. Please visit the gallery to see how our students are bringing this precious and fragile part of our our heritage to life.

This is My God-A Theology for Modern Jews with Rabbi Paul Citrin

Many modern Jews have difficulty with a God concept because they cannot accept the anthropomorphic view of God presented in the Bible and Siddur. The questions are: What are our alternatives and where can we find them in Jewish tradition? What do modern, faithful Jews of sophisticated learning and thinking teach us? Does it matter whether we can find a view of God that we can affirm? What are the practical ramifications of "finding one's God"? We will pursue these and related questions in both ancient and contemporary texts and engage in personal discussion.

Text materials will be provided. Fee: $50 To register contact Glorya Hale: ghale22@aol.com.

This class will meet o Thursdays, October 17, 24 and 31; and November 7 and 14 from 5:45 to 7:00 pm in the Study (main building)
