Virtual Community

As we work to remove in-person interactions within our community and across the country, Jewish Center of the Hamptons has been working to create a virtual community for our members. For many, this is a new concept. Yet we recognize that for the time being, this pandemic requires that we adapt our lives to a new reality.

Below you will find a list of virtual classes, live-streamed worship services, and other online experiences that can be accessed from your homes.

-Rabbi Joshua Franklin & Rabbi Debra Stein, Cantor

Classes and Community Events

Mussar: A Practice of Shaping Our Holy Virtues
Mondays at 5:00pm
with Rabbi Joshua Franklin
The word “Mussar” translates into “correction” “instruction,” or “ethics;” but Mussar as a practice describes a movement of self betterment through the development of holy Jewish virtues. Come explore one value (middah) at a time with Rabbi Josh Franklin, as we unpack ideas such as humility (anavah), wisdom (chochmah), “generosity (n’divut), compassion (rachamim), and trust (bitachon). Mussar is not Jewish self-help. Its purpose rather is to elevate holiness in each individual.
