SHIR AMI LIFELONG LEARNING
SHIR EDUCATION 5780 
2019-2020 
Pathways To A Meaningful Jewish Life

DOING THE RIGHT THING IN THE SYNAGOGUE
WITH RABBI STROM
TUESDAYS, NOVEMBER 12 & 19
7:15-8:30PM
In this course, we'll have an opportunity to talk about ethical decision making in the congregation. We'll learn about how such decisions ought to be made. We'll look at Jewish texts that will help us decide the right thing to do.


5780 is going to be an exciting year for Lifelong Learning at Shir Ami! We are expanding in new and different directions, cognizant of the fact that there are many pathways to deepen our connections to Jewish wisdom individually and collectively. Whether you take one, two or all these pathways, we wish you an amazing adventure and look forward to learning both with you from you along the way!
