May Worship —                  Gifts of Curiosity

Moving from fear to open-heartedness. The worship experiences this springtime month all explore the spiritual practice of what Einstein called, “Holy Curiosity.” So bring your questions. Bring your broken-open heart. Bring your wildest imagination in the spirit of exploration. Who are we? Where are we going? As an evolutionary process. As a nation. As a people of faith and doubt, stretching beyond our little selves. Who are we being inspired to be? Who are we choosing to become? Celebrate life. Nourish the spirit. Inspire justice. Every Sunday, 10:30AM, at the big, open heart in...

Share the Plate supports Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh

During November and December we raised $855 for Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh, part of a national movement of tens of thousands of progressive Jews that believes in the beautiful but unfulfilled promise of this country as a land of opportunity, justice, and equality for all. In the face of racism, inequality, and the politics of fear, we are asked to rise up with courage to act boldly for justice, believing that together we have the power to transform this country.

Winter Weather Advisory: We’ll be OPEN!

With wintry weather arriving this weekend a reminder that regardless of weather we gather each Sunday for a 10:30am worship service. Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, the sidewalks and steps will be cleared and we’ll be here! If the weather is severe enough that speakers, worship hosts, musicians, etc can’t make it, then we may all need to be flexible and the service format may be a little different, but we will strive to have a meaningful spiritual experience for anyone who can attend. Your safety is the most important thing – evaluate the conditions and your...
