  • Current Events - Discussion of hot topics that need to be cooled down, presented to inform, not to persuade.
  • Book Review - My favorite books and/or authors that I think would be of interest, old or new. Suggestions gladly accepted.
  • Text Study -  Texts from the Bible to Zohar, Talmud to Hasidis masters- presented with original Hebrew or Aramic with translations provided. We will bring to life the inner wonders of Jewish texts.
  • Thoughtful, Not Ideological - The tough discussions on Race, Class, Gender, etc., where thoughtful people want to discuss an issue with people of different opinions. I would invite guest speakers with expertise to help with the discussion on given issues.

Other topics for a Tuesday night will gladly be considered.

Our guides of “political spirituality” will be in force: facts, values, premises, policies – no anger, criticizing, complaining, or condemning (no accusing, blaming, labeling, comparing unkindly, etc.)

All relevant sides to an issue will be countenanced.

Suggestions for specific books, texts, discussion topics and guest presenters are gladly accepted.

Weekly Wisdom Seminar

Wednesday Afternoons
On Hiatus
Stay tuned!

Weekly Wisdom Seminar is shaping the inner self for spiritual, moral and emotional growth. In class, we learn to identify the processes of our thoughts, emotions, feelings, drives, and impulses that create our state of mind, and therefore our behaviors. We learn how to look objectively at the 'ego mind.' The focus on spiritual psychology helps us create a contemplative practice where we can better understand our inner processes with an eye toward transformation and moral growth.

The new format is that each month Rabbi Finley will focus on a particular topic for the the first half hour of the session, and the second half hour will be for questions on the topic of the month, or any other topic related to Wisdom Work.
