An optional dinner is at 6:00 pm for a cost of $10 per person, per session. Each lecture starts at 7:00 pm and there’s no charge to attend just the sessions.

In this five-session series, we will explore the stories that we Jews tell, from biblical times to the present, about our dual commitments to Jewish particularism and Jewish universalism. Together we will mine the Jewish tradition for orientations and values that we want to be the dominant, guiding lens through which we approach the idea of nationalism – all the while, deeply cognizant of the multivocal tradition and the possibilities for alternative orientations.

Sunday School Try Out at Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation

Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School with your child joining their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in 1st through 10th Grade Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more. Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and with no expectation of a commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with a belief in human responsibility and equality – for us, it’s about people, not prayer.

Sunday School Try Out at Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation

Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School with your child joining their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in 1st through 10th Grade Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more. Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and with no expectation of a commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with a belief in human responsibility and equality – for us, it’s about people, not prayer.

Sunday School Try Out at Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation

Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School with your child joining their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in 1st through 10th Grade Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more. Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and with no expectation of a commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with a belief in human responsibility and equality – for us, it’s about people, not prayer.
