Open Circle offers classes focused on Mindfulness and Mysticism, Politics and History Circles, Art and Culture and Texts and Traditions, or you can create your own Open Circle salon on any Jewish text or theme.

When we consider the ways in which we can try to repair our broken world, grounding our work in the texts of our tradition both elevates the quality of the work we do and creates a sense of shared community, each doing our own part.

– Elyse Winick, Senior Director, Learning and Engagement at Combined Jewish Philanthropies.
