What We Believe
“Sing to God a New Song for God Has Worked Wonders” – Psalm 98
L’Chaim means, to life! The L’Chaim Center was created in fall of 2009 to provide worship services including Shabbat and holidays, Talmud classes and educational opportunities for all unaffiliated Jews and non-Jews. In ordinary times, The L’Chaim Center celebrated Jewish life at various community centers. But until quarantine ends, you can find us maskless on Zoom. That’s not a bad thing, since so many of our congregants and followers are scattered throughout the area and even the United States. We also minister to patients and families struggling with illness.
As the saying goes, we plan and G-d laughs, and that’s definitely been all of our experiences with COVID-19. Fortunately, resiliency is our specialty. We’ve always worked with worshippers searching for a different, less-formal but deeply spiritual approach to Judaism.
Join us no matter where you are, to experience the joys of Jewish living and learning in a warm and embracing setting.
What happens to a Stage IV breast-cancer survivor who’s beaten all the odds? Our Rabbi Marcy Greene has a pretty good idea.
With cancer in abeyance, she’s more than an official guinea pig who endured extra rounds of herceptin to help other future survivors of the disease. A graduate of New York’s Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Greene now turns Jewish scholarship into transformative action and leadership.
She celebrates life with Shabbat services, weekly Bible study, and goes head-to-head with the finest minds grappling to understand what the Talmud really teaches.
To her congregation she teaches spiritual life and healing, breathing new life into that old canard about not being able to control what happens to you – just how you react to it. “Here’s the blessing, here’s the curse – choose life!”
