Lunch and Learn with Rabbi Ron Symons – Tuesdays, 12:15-12:45 pm

Join with Rabbi Ron Symons in discussion around the most important issues of our day.  More than a current events class, these gatherings afford us the opportunity to ground our perspectives in values that humans have been holding dear for thousands of years and that have the potential to guide us today.

Your voice matters if you choose to share.

Your presence makes a difference if you choose to show up.

People of all types of faith and hope, backgrounds and traditions are welcome.

We are looking forward to gathering at lunch time for conversations based in current events and Jewish values.  Our conversation will be all the richer because of your participation.  We welcome people of all backgrounds and opinions.
