Through social activities, like our Book Club, we’re building a strong and connected community of Pathfinders. All books will be author’s memoirs on their journey of questioning and moving away from their segregated community. The group will then meet to discuss the writer’s story, and compare the book’s journey to their own. A huge thank you to our Book Club facilitator, Sarah Barzel.
* Please note Book Club is strictly for anyone who may be questioning or transitioning away from their Orthodox community or have already left.
If you would like to participate, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
For confidentiality and safety of those attending, please don’t bring others without contacting us first.
– Pathways does not aim to sway anyone away from orthodoxy or religious affiliation.
– Pathways is not affiliated with any religious institutions.
- Shomer Shabbat and kosher catered.
