As we get back in the flow of things, please take a moment to register your child/children for the upcoming Church School Year! We have some great lessons, activities and events planned for your children (and even you) throughout the year.

Our interfaith learning initiative with Hebrew College
Me'ah Select 2015-2016

The Brookline Clergy Association is co-sponsoring this unique interfaith program and we want to make sure all parishioners have the opportunity to enroll by September 8.
FALL COURSE with Dr. Shaye Cohen: From the Hebrew Bible to Judaism; from the Old Testament to ChristianityThe Hebrew Scriptures, what Christians call the "Old Testament" and Jews call the "Bible," are the basis of both Judaism and Christianity. In this course we shall survey how this work of literature, through interpretation and re-interpretation, spawned two different cultural systems. Topics to be surveyed include: canon and prophecy: exegesis and Midrash; Shabbat and Sunday; temple, synagogue, church; the Oral Torah and the Logos; sin and righteousness; messiah and redemption.Mondays, 7:00-9:30 pm from October 19 through December 21 at Temple Ohabei Shalom, 1187 Beacon Street, Brookline.
Please click HERE for an application form, or pick one up on Sunday morning at the ushers table.
Summer Hymn Sing
During our summer Sunday services (mid-June through Labor Day weekend), we have an ongoing "hymn-sing," in which we sing hymns selected by members of the congregation. We can't promise that all suggested hymns will make it into a service; but we will do our best to include all suggestions.
