We are currently exploring forming small groups based on common interests. You will be hearing more about our small groups initiative in the coming year.
Meetings: Sunday mornings during Religious School and first Tuesday of the month
Do you like to knit and crochet, do needlepoint, sew or quilt? Join us in making the fabric of our community stronger! The IHC Mitzvah Stitchers get together on Sunday mornings during Religious School and at Needle Nights on the firstTuesday of the month to stitch, kvetch and make beautiful things to help others. We love to teach beginners, so no experience is necessary! For more information call the IHC Main office at 317-255-6647.
Meetings: Saturday mornings, 9:00am
IHC clergy lead a weekly study group exploring the Tanakh from a religious, literary and socio-historical perspective, seeking greater insight into this age-old, yet timeless text. For more information, contact the main office at [email protected].
Meetings: Select Wednesdays, 9:30am
Stop by the YAC for an engaging and fresh introduction to Jewish text and sources, always stimulating and relevant. Look for specific dates on IHC's website calendar. This class is sponsored by Sisterhood. For more information, email [email protected].
Meetings: Third Wednesday of the month at 6:00pm
Join us to discuss compelling articles in the "independent, Jewish and frankly feminist magazine," Lilith which reports on topics of "family politics, Jewish hair, race and reconciliation, new liturgies, good advice, fabulous fiction, parenting now, marriage equality, feminist philanthropy, sex, food-and so much more." We typically meet the third Wednesday, every other month, at 6:oo pm, alternating between IHC and a member's home. You do not need to be a Sisterhood member to join this group, but you do need to purchase a subscription to the Lilith Magazine. For more information, email [email protected].
Adamah (Earth) Initiative
Meetings: Second Thursday of the month, 5:00-6:00pm at IHC
Join IHC members to discuss reducing energy consumption and waste, food waste prevention, recycling and composting, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), food health and wellness. We plan to work with our religious school to implement programming on climate activism and environmental justice. We also hope to build partnerships with other IHC committees and much more!
