Uniting Around Our Common Heritage
The Torah Life Center was established in 1996, in the heart of the Washington Metro area, as an educational forum, dedicated to helping Jews of every type of belief explore their heritage and grow in Jewish understanding, both intellectually and spiritually. Torah Life Center programs are either free or have a modest suggested donation. The Torah Life Center has been directed by Shoshanna Tita since its inception.
Although it is a relatively new organization, Torah Life Center has already made a strong impact on the Jewish community in the Washington, DC area and on the Jewish communities in the cities where the organization has established satellite centers.
What sets the Torah Life Center apart from all other Jewish organizations is its inclusive appeal. People at opposite poles of opinion and belief are able to enjoy a rare and special commonality at Torah Life Center programs, a commonality which is usually not available or possible for them in other settings. This kind of inclusive dialogue can only strengthen and enhance the entire Jewish community.
Torah Life Center Programs
Weekly Lectures: The Center's weekly lectures for women on the Torah portion, consistently attract between 100 and 150 women. Some have no connection to Judaism, other than attending the lectures. Others are members of local Reform, Conservative and Orthodox congregations. Still others are strongly identified secular Jews. Yet all find in these classes something to learn, to enrich their lives as well as a special bond with each other.
Monthly Lecture Series: In 1998, Torah Life Center began a monthly lecture series, which also quickly became a local institution, with each new lecture eagerly awaited.
Shoshana Tita , director of Torah Life Center, appears on SHALOM , a TV program broadcast in 60 countries.
