Moving involves expenses.  If you can help, even a little bit, please consider making a donation.

The new location will afford us many advantages.  Our new home is in a safe and family friendly part of town. There is plenty of parking, a full kitchen, lovely outdoor spaces, a park and playground next door, and we will have the ability to have all our events, services and classes under one roof. We also have the opportunity to collaborate with a spiritual community with whom we share many common values.

We are planning to move through the month of February

The Tree of Life- 

Deepening Our Understanding of the Kabbalistic Sefirot

 3 Thursdays, 7:00-8:30 pm

With Rabbi Eli Cohen and Baruch (Gary) Dolowich 


The practice of “Counting the Omer” between Passover and Shavuot is a way to deepen our understanding of the Sefirot, emanations of Divine energy on the Tree of Life, and cultivate these qualities in our lives.


In this three-part series, we will examine three complementary pairs of Sefirot and explore how they balance each other and enrich our lives.  


February 9th:  Chesed & Gevurah, the qualities of Lovingkindness & Boundaries.  

February 23rd:  Chochmah & Binah, the mysteries of Wisdom & Understanding.  

March 9th:  Netzach & Hod, the energetic expressions of Endurance & Splendor.

This class is suitable for beginners who want to learn some of the basic teachings found in the Jewish mystical path of the Kabbalah, as well as for those who are more familiar with these concepts and have been counting the Omer for years.  

    Location:  CY Shul at the Center for Spiritual Living, 1818 Felt Street, Santa Cruz, or online

Doctor Lost or Found Podcast

Rabbi Eli Cohen and Dr. Michelle Choi speak about the Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism. Kabbalah is a discipline and school of thought in Jewish mysticism, to explain the relationship between the unchanging and eternal God. We talk about how God moves in mysterious ways, how the essence of God could have always been there even when we don't see it. A truly fascinating discussion as we talk about true knowledge as we try to understand our inner process, learn and grow, to know the essence of God.

We are starting to have services at our physical shul!

And we still have an array of exciting virtual classes and services available via Zoom. Join us for Kabbalat Shabbat services, Saturday morning services.
