Contact: Rabbi David Oler, Ph.D.

?Kadima? is a Hebrew term connoting forward movement and progressive change, and the congregation seeks to create such transformation through studying Jewish ethics, fostering personal reflection and engaging in social justice activities. The Rabbi, Dr. David Oler, is also a clinical psychologist and in his teaching emphasizes Tikun Atzmi, personal self-repair, and Tikun Olam, the responsibility to repair the world by practicing justice and harmonious living, central concerns of Jewish tradition. The rabbi teaches an adult class on Saturday mornings, Jewish Ethics for Personal Transformation, which draws on Mussar literature, a compendium of ethical principles. The congregation sponsors Shabbat services and dinners, a variety of social and cultural activities, and is engaged in feeding the homeless, and working for racial justice and the protection of the environment. The religious school meets on Saturday mornings and offers youth a parallel approach to Jewish living.
