CRT’s Journey to Spain
Our journey to Spain provided us with an opportunity to encounter and experience the Jewish heritage of what is known in our tradition as Sefarad – from Roman times in the First Century through the “Golden Age” of coexistence with Muslims and Christians from the 9th to the 14th Centuries – tragically ending with Expulsion and Inquisition in 1492‐ and now witnessing a new era of rebirth. We explored the beautiful cities of Madrid, Toledo, Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Barcelona. Click here to learn more.

New programs at CRT: Torah Through the Arts
CRT has long embraced a broad and creative vision of Jewish adult learning that explores the intersection of Jewish culture and the Fine Arts, theatre, music and history. In addition to the various events that we co-sponsor with the Emmanuel Center, we are marking our Kehilat Mitzvah year with a special monthly offering of diverse opportunities to continue this distinctive approach to studying “Torah” in its broadest sense. Rabbi Berman teaches us that a core value of Reform Judaism is to experience our broader culture through the lens of Jewish spiritual and ethical values. This is the guiding principle of this new series!
CRT celebrated its 13th year with a Kehilat Mitzva Gala celebration.
