Connecting & Flourishing Through Deep Spiritual Roots
Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 9:00 PM

Our Jewish sources tell us that “Man is a tree of the field”! Our deep roots, when planted firmly on solid ground, can help our efforts ‘bear fruit’ in life. And those ‘fruits’ are our acts of kindness and good deeds! Tu b’Shevat is known as the New Year of the trees! Come learn about this mystical holiday and how to maximize its spiritual energy! Even if the depth of a Canadian winter, our root systems must be nurtured!

Purim Lessons & Tapping Into the Power of the Hidden
Monday, February 22, 2021 at 9:00 PM

The heroine of the Purim story, Queen Esther, faces a moment of deep fear and moves forward despite it. This story teaches us much about “That which is Hidden”, and how to tap into the power of the soul and the body working in cooperation! What are the timeless lessons available to us through understanding the message of the Purim story, and how can we rise to the challenge of our own Esther Moments?!

The Jewish Perspective on Freedom for All
Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at 9:00 PM

How does Judaism define the notion of freedom? Is it freedom from or freedom to? The Passover story is a universal paradigm of ‘purposeful freedom’, teaches us how one can maximize their potential through free will and the choosing of greatness. As we navigate this auspicious time let’s tap into the spiritual opportunities to ‘set ourselves free’ and to recognize the potential pitfalls and problems that can send us right back into slavery!

Beyond Exodus & Cheesecake
Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 9:00 PM

An often-overlooked holiday, Shavuot is about more than just cheesecake! It is the culmination of all we learned during the Exodus and provides us an answer to the question “Is it freedom from or freedom to!” The giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai changed the world, and we are its rightful heirs! Let’s understand why we eat all those dairy products, while re-committing ourselves to being ‘a light amongst nations’ through Jewish values.
