In The KItchen Food for thought is also on the menu… We’re dishing text study, sampling fresh perspectives, and introducing new presentations to help us make sense of our changing world — embracing sustainability over scarcity, and partnerships over patriarchy.
Imagine A Place. . .
- Committed to nurturing community, comfort, and caring;
- a place that brings together all the right ingredients to nourish your mind, body and spirit;
- Centering compassion, collaboration and a life-affirming ethic, where we can learn together how to cook, eat, think, and live more healthfully;
- Rooted in the OYR community that connects with and influences the quality of life for area residents through exchanging ideas and serving-up food for thought;
- Open to individuals from all faith traditions where you can explore a menu of mindfulness practices, savor new insights, and experience personal growth.
That place is The KItchen at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel.
