At the heart of IDRA is learning as the ongoing creative act that underlies our Jewishness. 

Beginning Monday, August 19, at 8 pm, Rabbi Joe Schwartz will be teaching on the spiritual path of the Piaseczna Rebbe. The class will meet weekly. No background is required. For more information, check out our Facebook page.

And beginning this fall, our Hebrew Literature Reading Group will begin. We’re exploring works of Hebrew literature, in the original language, that deal with Jewish themes and ideas in creative ways, and are meeting every 4-6 weeks to discuss them. Our first novel is “The Third,” by Yishai Sarid, which imagines a near future in which a Third Temple has been built — and destroyed. If you’re interested in joining, please write us.

And regularly check out our upcoming events to see what we’re brewing!
