    Seven Sacred Steps: Demystifying Mikvah  
    Monday, Nov 19th 7:30p to 9:00p
    Join Rabbi Yael for a deep dive into the ancient ritual of mikvah. We will demystify this mysterious Jewish space by exploring traditional and contemporary, creative uses of mikvah. How can mikvah be used as a ritual for healing, or to mark the passage of time and life transitions? This class may be for you if you are curious about mikvah, or if you want to experience mikvah for the first time with a supportive community. Or, this class may be for you if you are going through a life transition -- such as marriage or divorce, illness or healing, infertility or pregnancy. This inaugural "Demystifying Mikvah" series will be open to women. If you are not a woman and are interested in this class - please contact Rabbi Yael so we can plan for the future.

    Tamar Manasseh: A Mom On A Mission
    Friday, Nov 30th 6:30p to 10:00p
    How do you combat violence in your streets? Do you need to be a trained organizer in order to create change? Tamar Manasseh says "No." Her response is to take a seat and give out hugs. Since 2015, when she founded MASK (Mothers AND Men Against Senseless Killings) in Chicago, she has worked to put eyes on the streets, interrupt violence and crime, and teach children to grow up as friends rather than enemies. She, along with a group of caring individuals in the community, began to simply hang out on the block, cook food, and emanate love. Come join us for a Shabbat Dinner where we will have the opportunity to hear Tamar's story (MASK is only one component of it) and learn how to make change by doing.

    Responsa for the 21st Century: Early Morning Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky
    Tuesday, Dec 11th 8:15a to 9:00a
    The tradition of Jewish wisdom stretches back millennia, to times and places unimaginably different from our own. Sometimes we can apply ancient wisdom to modern problems, and sometimes that's not so easy. Each month we will study modern rabbinic attempts —mostly heterodox, sometimes more traditional — to answer today's questions, in areas like medical, social, economic, and political ethics.

Come join the Ansche Chesed community as we hear Moshe Zonder, Head Writer of Fauda, as he shares with us the background of the show, and why he thinks Israeli television is the new trend in must-see TV.
