Ever wondered what the High Holidays are really all about?

Wednesdays, 7:00 p.m. September 7 and 14 with Rabbi Matt

The month of Elul, preceding the high holiday season, offers us space and time for contemplation, to make ourselves ready to enter the holiest time of our year. Take the opportunity to look inward and find ways to return to our best selves with Rabbi Matt.

The Jewish Roots of the Ouija Board

The High Holidays are a time of introspection—a time that we ask what the future holds for us? Are we in control? Is God? Maybe we should just use a Ouija Board. Yes, that spirit board or talking board, with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0–9, the words "yes", "no", "hello" and "goodbye", along with various symbols and graphics.

It’s well known that Baltimore is the birthplace of the Ouija Board, but few people know of its Jewish connections. Join us as we journey into the history of the Ouija Board—the World’s Best-Selling Game.

Thursday, September 8 at 7:00 PM

WHAT IF THE ACT OF MAKING A ROUND CHALLAH FOR ROSH HASHANAH AS A COMMUNITY COULD HELP STOP THE NOISE CURRENTLY AROUND US, MAKING LIFE LESS STRESSFUL AND MORE MEANINGFUL?

A round challah is one of many ways that we make regular foods extra special in celebration of the New Year. This year, kick your challah-making game up a notch.
