This email series is for parents in interfaith families with young children who are interested in exploring ways to infuse Jewish values into the routine of their daily life and to bring more peace, spirituality and love into their parenting. The 8 emails will explore the Jewish and universal values of righteous living, love, acceptance, gratitude and learning. Each email contains a Jewish story or value connected to the real challenges and joys of parenting and provides a toolkit of practical advice and resources. The email series will be sent four times a year, beginning the first or second Monday of January, May, August and November. You may register for a given series up until the day before it begins. Registration is always open…so register now and you’ll start getting the emails in your inbox as soon as the next series begins. We also invite you to join our private Facebook group for parents. It's a place where parents (and prospective parents) in interfaith families can ask questions, share resources, support one another, etc. The mailings for this session will begin in November of 2019. read less

AN EXPLORATION. Students are expected to ask questions, challenge assumptions, and push the boundaries of what Judaism is, was, and could be. ​RELEVANT. At the end of each year, we meet with our students and develop our course catalog based on their specific requests and feedback. But more than that, you choose the courses that you take. Whatever your reason - a course topic is particularly appealing to you, a friend is in a certain class, or you love a specific educator - your courses are your choice. ​COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR REALITY. We hear you: high school is tough, it's busy, and your schedule changes every 5 minutes. That's why we've designed Chai School with flexibility in mind. We offer courses in the Fall, Winter, and Spring, on Sunday mornings and on certain weekday afternoons. You can sign up for as few as one course or as many as six. How many courses you take, which courses you take, and the time of year you participate in Chai School is up to you. Questions? Contact us at 310-481-3232 or teencenter@sinaitemple.org. read less

Rimonim is the Hebrew word for "pomegranates." Every pomegranate holds hundreds of seeds full of vibrant color, sweetness, and vitality waiting to burst forth into the world. Jewish tradition teaches us that the seeds inside each pomegranate represent the 613 good deeds that one must accomplish in life. Just as one good deed leads to another, we hope that this sacred music implants in you the seeds to inspire your own acts of loving-kindness. Join with us on the second Friday of each month for a musical Shabbat service that reaches into your soul through song, prayer, and dance. Dress is casual, and the service is open to everyone. Come as you are. Leave transformed. read less

For over 60 years, Camp JCA Shalom has been the “Camp for All Seasons.” Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, thousands of campers and staff experience the magic of Camp JCA Shalom. Camp’s vision of Tikkun Olam – creating a better world – is fulfilled through a positive Jewish living experience in the natural setting of the Shalom Institute. In our warm and supportive environment, campers experience living, learning and playing in a group setting that encourages personal growth and self-discovery. Campers also have fun! They participate in a variety of programs and activities daily, they make new and lasting friendships and develop a wealth of new skills and interests. Our campers go home with a lifetime of cherished memories, new skills, and a positive self-image. It is truly an unforgettable experience for all! We will create our Camp JCA magic in the beautiful Angeles National Forest at Gold Creek Center! Camp staff has been thorough and tenacious in search of the best location and Gold Creek Center is ideal for us. The beautiful, natural setting has the camp vibe we are used to. We will be able to maintain our cabin-centered approach to the camp experience with cabin-like housing units (that are air-conditioned and have attached bathrooms and showers!). Campers will experience the same Camp JCA Shalom culture and community that leads to making great friendships and experiencing life-changing moments. Camp remains a safe place for your child to grow and learn and have fun. The campus is secure on a private mountain road and we will not be sharing the site with another group as in most of the other locations that were considered. We will have security on-site as we did in Malibu. Gold Creek Center is beautifully tucked away at the foot of the magnificent mountains of the Angeles National Forest, just 20-30 minutes from the heart of the San Fernando Valley, Simi Valley, and Santa Clarita and less than 45 minutes from the Conejo Valley and West Los Angeles. The 270+ acres include a pool, ball fields, basketball courts (indoor and outdoor), air-conditioned indoor program spaces, and the activities and fun you are used to from camp in Malibu. The site allows us to do the activities our campers love – gaga, ropes course, arts and crafts (tie dye!), “Jamba Jews” bike blenders, archery, gardening, water activities, pioneer living, outdoor cooking, nature walks, beach trips, overnights, mountain biking, horse and animal experiences, Israeli dance and Israel programming, song sessions, Shabbat services, and so much more! Our chef Jorge and his kitchen staff will be with us all summer, along with Robbo and our top-notch counselors and specialists. https://www.campjcashalom.com/blog/summer-2019/ 8955 Gold Creek Rd, Sylmar, CA 91342 read less
