OUR COMMUNITY DINNERS
“The meaning of Shabbat is to celebrate time rather than space. Six days of the week we live under the tyranny of things of space; on the Sabbath we try to become attuned to holiness in time.” Abraham J. HeschelMost Fridays we gather together to receive Shabbat and enter into this sacred moment of peace. If you are not yet a member and want to come as a guest, or you are traveling in Madrid and want to attend a Kabbalat Shabbat service, write to us here.
For Jews, what is sacred is not space but time, and our marvelous calendar is filled with holidays and other dates that CJRM celebrates.
The activities of each festivity are creatively planned by members of the community, seeking a balance between the educational, religious and spiritual components, all the while preserving the holiday’s essence, and of course, appealing to children and adults.During the year, you will find out information about the holidays, the activities and the times when they will take place.
We celebrate all expressions of culture. We take advantage and enjoy the culture within our community (e.g. monthly book club, cooking classes, Hebrew lessons) and whatever opportunity in Madrid to do cultural outings related to Judaism.
At the same time, we are not indifferent to the other cultures that we live with in this city, and we participate in various interrelgious groups.
Our activities ask that we study, know and question our textual legacy so that this knowledge brings us closer to compliance with the ethics of mitzvot, actively transmitting our values to position us as Jews in the 21st century.
In Chinuch, we have studied with rabbis about profound themes as well as listened to Jewish studies specialists about modern day issues.
