Bim Bam is a pre-Shabbat class for children ages 3 and under to sing Hebrew and Shabbat-related songs, hear stories, and give tzedakah. Each class is led by an experienced songleader/educator, and kids enjoy fun activities that connect song and motion to Jewish learning. We end every class with Shabbat blessings including lighting the candles, kiddush and hamotzi. Registration for the summer session is now open for the 9:15AM and 10:15AM classes. The cost is $200 for members and $250 for non-members per family (new members can register for free, please contact Emily Walsh). 5-Class Passes are also available, $125/members and $175/non-members. Register by June 12, and know that space is limited.

Join Rabbi Dr. Levi Cooper of the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem for this Tisha Be’Av teaching session. Tikkun olam is a catchcry in contemporary liberal society. It is used as a slogan for activism, a call for political involvement, and an expression of the coveted ideal of social justice. What did the Sages mean when they coined the term “tikkun olam”? This teaching will invite us to explore how the meaning of the term has developed over the ages. We will conclude by considering the positive and negative aspects of the evolution of tikkun olam.

It’s become an even more fulfilling experience now that the Ride’s base has returned to the Isabella Freedman Retreat Center in the southern Berkshires.
