First three Mondays: “Meaningful Prayer in Challenging Moments” with Rabbi Daniel Silverstein 

Bringing our Whole Self into Prayer—sources from the Tanach, ancient rabbis, Kabbalists and Chasidic masters on overcoming the many doubts, anxieties, distractions and other hindrances which impede our prayer experience, not by ignoring or dismissing them, but by bringing them into our prayers. 

Second three weeks: TBD, but the general topic “Insights about Health and Healing from the Bible” with Bex Stern Rosenblatt

Grandparents, parents, and our little ones are invited to join Carla from Tkiya to sing and dance along with friends from WJC! When a grownup signs on at the beginning of the session, please type your child’s name in the chat box so we can personally welcome each child to our PJ Library ShaJam get together! If you have any materials at home that will allow your family to better participate in music (scarves, shakers, etc) it will be great to have those on hand

Let’s Challah
Join Tami Arnowitz to make challah dough together. You can follow along with her as she makes her favorite recipe (click here) or make your own favorite recipe. It’s an opportunity to be together while preparing the delicious challah that will feed our bodies and our neshamot (souls) for Shabbat. We will make the dough together and then give instructions and suggestions on letting it rise, braid and bake or you can join back together on the same link to braid. 
If you need yeast (we know it’s hard to find), we have some to share. Please reach out to
Let’s Challah is open to all! This week we are doing it in conjunction with The Leffell School’s Challathon.

Prayer Services and Opportunities to say Kaddish

Weekdays and Sundays, 8:00am
Please note: The minyan will be led by one of our clergy, and it is not the same as saying kaddish with a physical minyan. When this crisis passes, we will return to the requirement of a minyan with ten people physically in attendance together to make a minyan.
On Tuesday and Thursday Rabbi Segelman will teach his regular after-minyan study session for 30-45 minutes. Just stay on the Zoom after the service to participate
Join us:

Sunday-Thursday, 7:00pm
WJC Evening Community Time
There was such an overwhelming appreciation for being together Friday and Saturday evenings that we are adding a regular evening gathering. It’s a 15-20 minute opportunity to be together with our community and clergy for a song, prayer, story or meditation. Appropriate for all ages.
