Our Tent Feels Different Because It's Built Differently

Moving beyond textbooks, Our Tent engages learners in conversations and immersive experiences helping life long learners lead richer Jewish lives. 

Our program for younger students, older students and everyone in between is innovative. It features peer and multigenerational classes fostering community, a variety of topics encouraging diverse perspectives and worship bringing everyone together. Lifelong learners delve into topics to gain a greater sense of mastery- leading to a richer sense of Jewish identity. 

Our Tent goes beyond its classes with opportunities beyond Sunday morning, with meaningful Shabbat experiences, a popular and transformational retreat, and a theme. Scroll down to learn about this year's theme, Mah Tovu Ohalecha: How Lovely are ALL the Sacred Spaces We Create Together.”

Our Lifelong Learners Rave

Playing with LEGO bricks as we do in class is a child’s activity taken to an adult level to uncover and creatively express the meaning of mensch.

- Susan Gordon Merdler 

I am enrolled in Old Words; New Meanings. I picked this one in particular because of its focus on a feminist perceptive in viewing the Torah. I love the idea that we are creating our own midrash based on how women were viewed during biblical time

– Becky Streem

Our Tent is prayer and learning for all ages... Pick your class...and learn something new.

– Karen Schneiderman

This Year, We're Discovering all the Sacred Spaces in Our Lives

Tikkun Olam: Now More Than Ever

With these silver learnings from this past year, we look ahead to year five of our learning program and ask, how lovely is Our Tent?  And I find myself answering AMAZINGLY lovely, INSPIRINGLY lovely, JOYOUSLY lovely, MEANINGFULLY lovely, SPIRITUALLY lovely, BLESSEDLY lovely!  As we prepare for a year of hybrid learning where some will return to the sacred space of our building, while others will choose to learn from the holy spaces they create in their homes, our learning theme for this new year will be “Mah Tovu Ohalecha: How Lovely are ALL the Sacred Spaces We Create Together.”
