Simple Truths

Pivotal Jewish Insights for Centered Living

Life is complicated and, like a ship being tossed about by a raging sea, we often struggle to stay above water amidst the chaos. We constantly wrestle with questions surrounding family, relationships, career, and identity, questions about how to be more successful and fulfilled; how to be happier; how to stay focused on what’s important; how to align ourselves with our true values. Yet, in life’s turbulent waters, it’s easy to lose our sense of direction. 


Simple Truths, a new seven-part course for women, explores twelve foundational core beliefs and perspectives of Judaism. They are insights that anchor us, empower us, and guide us in times of doubt and uncertainty; that nourish our inner oasis of calm and stability; that give us the confidence and know-how to navigate life’s most difficult challenges. 

Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.” While the beauty of Judaism’s “simple truths” lies in their power to simplify our lives, they require us to think deeply about ourselves and our world, to uncover layers of sophistication and nuance, to examine and reexamine our preconceived notions. Throughout the seven lessons of this course, students will delve into these core ideas through hands-on workshops and a kaleidoscope of both ancient and contemporary Jewish texts—from the biblical to Talmudic to Kabbalistic and Chasidic—and leave with transformational, concrete tools for weathering the storms of life. 

 

Art and Soul

Join us on a seven-part journey as we explore Judaism's insights into the arts and how they beautify and transform our lives, one brushstroke at a time...

Soulmates

Jewish Secrets to Meaningful Relationships

Romantics of all ages have waxed poetic on the notion of “soulmates,” seeking to grasp what makes love and passion so potent, what drives the inexplicable magnetism between two people, and what makes true love last. Yet millennia of Jewish text and tradition are rich with insights on this very topic, from the mystical and spiritual to the no-nonsense and practical. Whether you are currently married, considering someday tying the knot, or simply seek to better understand the spiritual root of love and marriage, Soulmates is a seven-session course drawing on timeless Jewish wisdom that will forever change how you think about the important relationship in your life, in all its beauty and complexity.

Kaleidoscopes of beauty and meaning, changing how we see ourselves, our relationships, and our world.

Rivka's Tent

The three miracles of Sarah’s Tent ceased upon her passing. They returned when Rivkah built her home. These miracles correspond to the three mitzvot given specifically to Jewish women. It is our mandate, through observing and beautifying these mitzvot, to bring light, peace and blessing into our homes and into the world at large.
