PROGRAMS & PARTICIPATION

We are well underway to achieving our “Whole New World” vision with existing and future programs and events that will form the heartbeat of our vibrant community, enhanced by religious, lifestyle and educational enrichment across our generations.

A truly Whole New World we can all be part of and proud of!

We welcome you, or any family members who may be interested, to volunteer for the many programs our community is offering. Please feel free to reach out to Jackie Cohen or Merle Gaylis at info@aishsd.com for any inquiries or if wish to participate in any of the programs.

SELECTED PROGRAM & EVENT DESCRIPTIONS:
CURRENT

1) DATE NIGHT FOR YOUNG COUPLES:

This twice a month class has two primary objectives: 

  1. To give couples an opportunity to get out and socialize with people in their same life-stage all while doing something fun; and 
  2. Provide Torahstudy in a relaxing environment. 

Many young couples are reluctant to go to synagogue, especially when their time is limited and they would prefer to do something entertaining. This program will incorporate the fun, such as learning how to bartend or painting a picture, followed by a class/discussion on marriage, free will, or a range of relevant topics. 

2) 4X4:

Monthly classes comprised of 4 couples who choose the subjects they want to learn over the course of 4 months. 

3) TUESDAYS WITH RAV NISSO:

A Tuesday night class in a family setting, open to the entire community, discussing the deep wisdom of the Torah. 

4) BAR MITZVAH: 

Bar Mitzvah program for boys ages 11-13 and divided into 2 parts: 

  1. On Mondays, the class focuses on context, what it means to become a Bar Mitzvah. The time is spent with open Q&A, discussions, as well as some guest speakers to further heighten the overall experience; 
  2. Wednesdays for Hebrew reading, learning prayers, etc. 

There will be a father/son retreat and activities for everyone to take part in. 

5) BAT MITZVAH:

Open to 11 and 12 year oldgirls and their mothers. This 10-session program includes learning about Jewish women throughout history, from ancient to the present time.

6) AISH IGNITE:

Young professional program for 22-35 year olds. The goal of the program is to build a community for this age group to create strong bonds, be their religious anchor in the years leading to marriage and starting families, and building on membership and continuity of the Shul.  Classes will be held at a downtown bar with an annual Israel (or other destination) trip.

7) ADULT BAR MITZVAH:
Opportunity for adult men who have already had their Bar Mitzvah to repeat part of it on the Shabbat anniversary. Interested members will be assisted with preparation. The objective is to commemorate their Bar Mitzvah and hopefully increase Saturday morning attendance by friends, family and the community.

8) KABBALAT SHABBAT: 

A special time where families can join together after the work-week and engage in Judaism through the uplifting melodies each congregant knows. A kiddish of challah, grape juice, cookies, cakes, and fruit will follow. Kiddish menu may change if sponsored due to a Yahrzeit, Bar Mitzvah, etc. 

9) SHABBAT SAN DIEGO: 

Part of a worldwide initiative, Shabbat San Diego is an opportunity to come together once a year as a strong, unified community knowing we are joining with Jews across the world to fulfill the observance of Shabbat. Events include a Challah bake, dinner after Kabbalat Shabbat, Guest Speakers, lunch after Shabbat day services and a Havdalah event. 

UPCOMING:

To encourage young couples to become and remain members, this program provides Jewish learning and enrichment for young children. Aish Sparks is a Sunday school program for children ages 5-11 to be run by qualified Jewish educators.

11) ISRAEL TRIPS:

Working with the team in Aish Israel, we will create trips to Israel for members of all ages, comprised of learning, touring and connecting each other to our heritage and the land and people of Israel.
