"Between the closed soul and the open soul there is the soul in the process of opening.

Between the immobility of a man seated and the motion of the same man running, there is the act of getting up, the attitude he assumes when he rises. In short, between the static and the dynamic there is to be observed,

in morality too, a transition stage."
Henri Bergson, The Two Sources of Morality and Religion



Dear Seeker of Jewish Spirituality, 


As a Jewish seeker of ways to inhabit life spiritually, I believe that, like me, you’ll find the courses and the programs offered by Shma Koleinu to be a well of intellectual invigoration and spiritual enhancement of your Jewish living as an individual, in the context of your family, in the service of your prayer community, and in your work as an educator and/or as a congregational/religious leader. 


Similarly, I trust that you will greatly enhance our learning and discussions. 


I invite you to explore our website and to join our e-mail list to get advance announcements about courses and programs.

Please contact us if you have questions or would like additional information.

I look forward to meeting you either face-to-face or in the context of one of our online courses.


Yours Sincerely,

Elie Holzer
Founding President and Education Director
