Core’s Communities of Practice

Core’s Communities of Practice are groups of women who share a field of Jewish service.

Each community regularly comes together with focused conversations and professional development aimed at improving and inspiring their practice. The goal is to create relationships with each other that give support, encouragement, pertinent information and chizuk. These communities provide opportunities to learn from and with each other.

Please note: These groups are not a substitute for Rabbinic guidance or piskei din.

Core offers classes to members of its Communities of Practice.
Please join a community to register for classes.
