These goals shall be achieved through weekly Torah (Bible) classes, monthly women’s programs, lectures on various Jewish issues, and guest speakers for religious and cultural events. We will also provide Shabbat and holiday services, Glatt (the highest of Kosher standards) Kosher dinners, holiday programs, and Shabbatons (unique weekends).
