Neshama Center

The Neshama Center for Lifelong Learning, a collaborative project of B’nai Tikvoh-Sholom and the Mandell Jewish Community Center, offers multi-week courses as well as single session programs and workshops. The Hebrew word “neshama” means “soul” and is related to the word “neshima,” meaning “breath.”  At Neshama, we invite people of all backgrounds to take a breather from the fast-paced world in which we live, and join us for inspiring, creative, joyful Jewish learning.

Register now for courses by emailing: office@btsonline.org or by calling: 860-243-3576. Classes meet at BTS (180 Still Road on the West Hfd/Blmfld line) or at The Mandell JCC (335 Bloomfield Avenue, West Hfd).
