LT Connects Small Groups of Meaning are peer-led groups, whose participants come together around a shared interest on a regular basis with the understanding that Jewish tradition and deep personal relationships add meaning to our lives.
Small groups explore the intersection where Jewish wisdom meets our daily lives, core interests, and present concerns. Larchmont Temple is growing bigger by thinking smaller.
Check out the small groups that started this Fall at our special website here.

Each Small Group will:
• Include 8-14 individuals
• Form around a shared interest
• Meet 6-8 times over the year [creating its own schedule], and then can choose to conclude or continue
• Be facilitated by two peers and supported by Rabbi Miller
Small Groups are doing just what we hoped - strengthening our connections to each other, to Judaism, and to Larchmont Temple. Here's what some of our participants shared in response to the question: “What did you like most about your small group experience?”
• Being able to meet other members of the congregation who were like minded. I felt it was a nice inroad to the community.
• It allowed me to connect with a group of women in our community who I don't see on a regular basis anymore since our kids are grown up.
• The supportive nature of my fellow group members.
• The sense of community and intergenerational sharing.
• I enjoyed the honest dialogue, the sense of humor and relatedness of the group, and the opportunity to think things through together.
• Feeling part of a close group related to LT & a continued study of Judaism.
• The connection, the learning, the openness amongst the group and the commitment.
