Chai Mitzvah is an adult Jewish engagement initiative, asking the question, "What do you want your adult Jewish life to look like?" and guides participants in answering that question through study, spirituality and social action.

Embarking on our fourth year, we are inviting all former students of Chai Mitzvah to sign up for this year’s program.  The content will be different and even though some of the subjects are universal, each month we will have a different “flavor” to the curriculum. 

 The program will begin on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. It is a nine-month program meeting once a month on a Tuesday evening at Beth Shalom from        7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. 

The cost will be $10 which covers your materials. Our goal is to educate, enlighten, and encourage our participants to learn and to act upon those values and spiritual beliefs that create the total person.
