MakomDC December Scholar Event and Installation of Rabbi Aaron Alexander
In this special Adas event, we help ceremonially welcome Rabbi Alexander and his family into our sacred kehillah. The installation is accompanied by a keynote learning session on "Seeing Through the Eyes of God" with Rabbi Brad Artson as part of our MakomDC learning series.


MakomDC November Scholar: Rabbi Brad Hirschfield
Arguments about religion, or in the name of God, are often the ugliest disputes people have, yet arguing about those very things is a sacred tradition going back to Abraham!  What's going on, and how can we recover an ethic of controversy, and a method of argument, that brings dignity and wisdom to life?


MakomDC Kickoff Event "Cracked, But Not Broken"
In this kickoff event the Adas clergy present some of our foundational texts for us to chew over in paired and small group learning, and larger group discussion. We debate, share ideas, and uncover the principles that chart a sacred path for living Jewishly with an open heart.
