Welcome to Skokie Valley!

We are a Modern Orthodox congregation with a firm commitment to halakha (Jewish law), a spirit of inclusion and ahavat achim v'achot (love of fellow person), and a strong commitment to intellectual discussion of 
Torah and other Jewish texts.
 
We invite you to join us in our “Big Tent” as we express the vitality and enthusiasm that defines us as Jews. Membership is open to all Jews regardless of affiliation, commitment or background.

Please see below for upcoming classes and events. Contact the office for the zoom links. Check back here often as our offerings expand to meet communal needs!

Sunday

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM: Update from Lod with Rabbi Shmuel Shattach (Sponsored by Anshe Shalom Bnai Israel)
Join us this Sunday over Zoom to hear from Shmuel Shattach, Executive Director of Ne’emanei Torah Va’Avodah. Learn from him about his community in Lod and his perspective on what took place there last week as well as how Torah v’Avodah is responding to the challenges facing Israel today. Shmuel Shattach is the Executive Director of Ne’emanei Torah Va’Avodah, a religious-Zionist movement that seeks to return Religious Zionism to its roots, works to create a thinking religious culture that is open and self-critical, and encourages a courageous halakhic discourse that deals with the challenges of contemporary times. Its orientation aims to promote the values of tolerance, equality, and justice in religious society, and to have a real influence on the Jewish-democratic character of Israeli society. Rabbi Shattach lives in Lod with his wife and six children.

This always interesting discussion will be followed by breathing exercises and a guided relaxation enabling you to regain focus and recharge for the rest of the day. I look forward to having you join us.
