A TED TALKis a video that presents a great idea in 18 minutes or less. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues to culture, art, and religion.  We’re planning to offer one TED TALK each month on a Sunday between services and then talk about the TALK.  Come join us and share your impressions, insight, and opinions.

“What Makes a Good Life? with Psychiatrist Robert Waldinger

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life?  If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken.  As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction.  In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a long, fulfilling life.  One of them may even surprise you.

The Church Kitchen

Our first baking fest had a waiting list!  So, Master Bread Baker Kent Stevens will lead another as we make braided challah together from scratch. Each of us will leave with the recipe and our own individual braided dough ready to bake in our ovens at home. Please just bring a cookie sheet on which to make your bread.  All other supplies and ingredients will be provided.  Learn to bake your very own bread for Easter – or any day!  Registration through the church office is a must.  Call the church office at (973) 635-2340.  Class limited to the first 6 people who register.
