We’ve gathered Jewish virtual resources for your education and entertainment! We’ll make sure we have you covered for those virtual holidays coming up. Keep checking in for new updates.

Celebrate Shavuot and bake along with Morah Rochie's world-famous (seriously!) cheesecake recipe!
Discussing: Night of the Hunter. This club is a way for those who love movies to watch some of the classics, and then get together and learn more about them. The idea is that whether you’ve seen the films before or not, you’ll get new insights that will deepen your appreciation and understanding of them.
Shavuot is a unique Jewish holiday, as it commemorates multiple occasions. The Summer Harvest, and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai.
Discussing: The Third Man. This club is a way for those who love movies to watch some of the classics, and then get together and learn more about them. The idea is that whether you’ve seen the films before or not, you’ll get new insights that will deepen your appreciation and understanding of them.
In the Chakra Yoga Flow, each week the sequence will focus on each chakra, starting from the bottom working our way up. The aim of the practice is to get our energy flowing and to bring awareness to our mind-body connection. Noticing any stiffness, blockages, or stagnant energy in our body and through yoga, allowing that energy to flow freely. Participants will receive an E-BOOK that dives deeper into explaining each chakra. The E-book includes: journal prompts, affirmations, and suggested activities and/or practices to connect deeper with each chakra into your day-to-day life. It is designed for you to work on one chakra per week.
