  • DAVID VS GOLIATH: ADDRESSING ISSUES OF CHILD SEXUAL ASSAULT                                      

     Shaarey Zedek member David Mittleman will speak following  Shabbat Morning services and lunch.  David describes his speech as follows: 

    “What Jewish values have guided me, the last 2 years, through the process of being retained by over 100  Survivors of the largest Local and

    National Child Sexual Assault Scandal and to represent them against Institutions with unlimited resources. Resulting in having them admit

    Responsibility, become Accountable and for the Survivors, to obtain Justice in the Civil Court system. And where we go from here….”

  • Our Spiritual Communal Family Helping One Another 

    Learn more about the Caring Community Program

    This program is a way for us to live our Jewish values by caring for one another, helping each other in concrete ways, and becoming a spiritual, communal family.

    Performing mitzvot are part of daily Jewish life. In the daily morning prayers, a passage from the Talmud (Shabbat 127a) enjoins us to honor our parents, do deeds of The lobby, provide hospitality, visit the sick, and comfort the bereaved.

    Everyone can participate 

    Everyone’s life has different demands and whatever one can do is greatly appreciated and valued.

    No mitzvah is too small!
