Spiritual Practice at the WJC

SPIRITUAL PRACTICE AT THE WJC

We have moved our synagogue programs online and are pleased to be able to offer a meeting place to deepen and to strengthen our spiritual lives and community. Our offerings tap different streams of Jewish spiritual practice. All are welcome to join in, and there is no charge.

On the days when we learn and practice from 1-2pm, at 2pm we will offer a communal healing prayer and also take advantage of our online minyan to provide an opportunity for anyone who needs to recite the Mourner’s Kaddish. Feel free to join us at 2pm, even if you have not been participating during the previous hour!
