Izzy Doliov and Brian Skiena finished their Shalom Sunday School studies on June 5, and have upcoming Bar Mitzvahs this summer. Congratulations Izzy and Brian! And a big congratulations to all our students for finishing the year -- and enormous thanks to our incredible teachers!

And we had to say good-bye to Rhianon, who has been our hard-working Education Director for many years. She has sadly taken a job on the island of Maui. Imagine, choosing Hawai'i over us! Word is she has successfully made the move. crying


A great turnout for our 2022 Passover seder!

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this event happen, the board, and mostly our valuable guests. A huge thanks to Jeff Triestman for putting together a meaningful hagaddah, one that reflects the views of Secular Humanism and the Secular Jewish Circle, and for leading the seder.

I hope folks who couldn't make it can come to our next event!

Tu B'Shevat Hike 

Sunday January 16th, 10:30 AM. We had a very nice hour-long hike through Carkeek Park in celebration of the Jewish Birthday of Trees. After a short spiel on SJC and the Tu B'Shevat Holiday, we talked about some local organizations that help us be more eco-conscious. Some are listed below. More info on the event here.
