Temple Sholom Sichot (Conversations)

Monthly Discussion Topics to inspire Community Action

Upcoming Sessions:

December 1, 2022, 7 - 8:30pm - How YOU can help refugees

We Need YOU for Temple Sholom Zoom discussions and advocacy.

You might be one of the thoughtful people in Temple Sholom yearning to make a difference in your community, or even the world. Members of Temple Sholom join together to do just that, on a different topic each month.

We will be sharing our hearts in meaningful conversations on topics that matter to us. We will be speaking with one another in these discussions via Zoom, so you don't even have to leave your own home.   We are using the Hebrew word of "Sichot" as the title for these discussions. Your input is valuable! Please join us for any topic you find compelling.

These discussions are not lectures in which we just listen. We hear from an expert briefly, and then have an interactive discussion about our perspectives and how we feel we can take action. We hope to get some volunteers among those who attend each session, who are interested in meeting further going forward, and keeping the conversation going. These people could continue to meet to think about next steps.  If you want to come and listen, that's okay too. However we hope many of those attending will be spurred to action that we can take together, as we support and meet with one another. All Temple Sholom members are welcome, and no prior knowledge is required to attend!

Even if you cannot attend a specific session, please let us know if you are interested in being a part of discussion on any or all of this issues, as we hope for these topics to be ongoing discussions, not a one time meeting. Also, if you would like to be part of our (small) Sichot planning committee for this series, please let us know. Please reach out to Jill Kaplan and the committee at

Thank you for sharing your heart and being, as we join together to be active in our world.
