What is Derekh?

Derekh is Congregation Beth Shalom’s adult programming department. We employ the ideas of targeted programming and engaging learning to provide fantastic experiences. We see ourselves as an engine for innovation, experimenting with new programs, new ideas, and striving for creativity.

What does this mean for you?

Derekh is built on the idea of teams. Each program starts with a small team of three individuals who are passionate about bringing it to the rest of the congregation. 

Do you have a great idea?

Find two friends and send Rabbi Jeremy Markiz an email! Together, as a team, you will be able to take the next steps to make your idea into reality.
