Beit Aharon (The Goodman Institute)

The Goodman Institute (established in 2002) makes it possible for every member of the AA community to travel his/her own path to Jewish learning. We offer a wide variety of programs (mostly free of charge) designed to serve the needs of beginning learners, advanced learners and everyone in between. Our scope includes the fundamental texts of Conservative Judaism, Jewish history, Zionism and Israel, religious beliefs, practices and rituals, Jewish philosophy, Hebrew language and all aspects of Jewish culture, including literature, music, art and drama.

Ahava Prime Timers (Ahava Luncheon)

Our name and social time have changed to reflect an expanded format that is open to all ages. We may have winter in our hair, but we have spring in our hearts and rhythm in our hands and feet! This social group meets the second Wednesday of the month from September through June. Beginning at 11:30AM we gather for hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Then at 12:00 noon share a buffet-style luncheon and dessert while enjoying lively and exciting entertainment. We will celebrate birthdays with our Prime-Time friends and door-prize suspense before we say ‘so long’ until next month. Please RSVP to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Bring joy to yourself and others… add Ahava to your social network. Who knows… you may just meet your match! So join us and bring your friends. Ahava Prime-Timers' programs are supported by generous donations from our members through the Dr. I. Jay Knopf Ahava Fund.
