Jewish Learning at the PJCC

The PJCC welcomes all to take part in learning experiences that celebrate Jewish life and culture. Learn and see how Judaism’s wisdom and practices can help you live with a joyful sense of well being.

Classes with Rabbi Lavey Derby

Guided Mindfulness Meditation
Mondays • 9:30 am
Note: No Meetings September 26 (Rosh Hashanah), October 3, October 10 (Sukkot), and October 17 (Simchat Torah)
Join us for meditation practice led by respected scholar and mindfulness mentor Rabbi Lavey Derby.

Meditation is an invitation to cultivate awareness of the present moment without judgment. We approach each moment with courage, curiosity, and compassion, creating space for whatever arises. As we practice, we learn to let go of the struggle with what is, to embrace ourselves and others in compassion, and to rest in the Mystery.

Registration required; email Rabbi Lavey Derby to sign up. Takes place via Zoom.


Life, It’s Complicated
Thursdays • 10:15 am
Note: No meetings September 22, September 29, October 6, November 17, and November 24
Join Rabbi Lavey in this free ongoing weekly conversation about Jewish topics of interest, Jewish perspectives on contemporary issues, and how Jewish wisdom can help us live a more meaningful life.

Attend in person or via Zoom. Registration required; email Rabbi Lavey Derby to sign up.
