NOTE: This event has already occurred.

Welcome to Lishma-

Lishma Jewish Learning Project is launching this fall, Nov 2018! We are convening a community of learners in their 20's and 30's who are excited to share their desire for greater Jewish engagement, who are willing to ask questions of our tradition, and who want to explore how it informs our lives today. We hope you'll be part of it. 


Each 6-week semester will include 3 simultaneously running classes in one of our three learning tracks:

1) BASE/Chevruta Track; partnered beit midrash-style learning
2) Text and Context Track; in-depth, expertly-led text study
3) Hands-On Track; applied Jewish learning

Each semester will be held at one of our four satellite campuses: MNjcc, Beth Tzedec Congregation, 
​CSI Annex, Holy Blossom Temple,


When you register you will be asked to select a course and pay a sliding scale fee. The suggested contribution is $72 ($12 a night). Mitzvah points will be given to those who contribute more. There is a minimum fee of $36 ($6 per night).



​Semester 4: May 15/22/29, June 5/12/19 @Holy Blossom Temple
Base/Chevruta Track: Refugees, Judaism and Asylum, Professor Howard Adelman
Text and Context Track: Judaism and Happiness, Rabbi Baruch Frydman-Kohl
Hands-On Track: Starting an Indigenous/Jewish Canadian Conversation, Leah Mauer


Our teachers bring a variety of backgrounds, skills, experiences, and perspectives with them. They are artists, educators, professors, rabbis, community members and we are excited for you to get to learn with and from them. We are not currently accepting new teachers but if you have a course that you can't wait to bring to Lishma in the future, please let us know!
