 The Joy is In the Journey

We invite you to participate in a variety of program offerings for which you will earn credit. You can participate in classes, worship services, community programs and Tikkun Olam activities. At the end of the year, there will be a special service, an awards ceremony and a celebration to honor individuals for various levels of participation and accomplishments. While participation in this Journey is voluntary, our hope is that all of our adult learners will complete one Pathway by the end of the year.
