Panim el Panim is an opportunity to deeply connect in a small group with meaningful conversations. Through engaged, active listening & experiential life-learning, we will nourish our souls Face to Face, not face to screen.


                    When was the last time you had a truly meaningful conversation?


Temple Beth Sholom’s Small Groups Initiative

Initial Groups Conclude May 2019. New Groups Launch Post High Holy Days 2019.



Why Small Groups


Rabbi Pomerantz's Vision

Why Participate


In Panim el Panim you will meet new people, forge new relationships both within the group context and, potentially, beyond, while having a safe space to be yourself and share from a place of honesty, curiosity, warmth, and even playfulness. Panim el Panim is not book learning but, rather, life-learning as we open up and learn about ourselves in relationship with others, building character in the process.


What Happens When I Join?


Joining a group is a commitment. Our inaugural year participants committed to attend 5 times, monthly, January - May 2019, on dates that were determined in conjunction with your group leader. There was no commitment beyond that. Many group members are recommitting to the same group for October 2019 – May 2020. Both current and new members are welcome to join current groups with openings or new groups that will be forming.


Types of Groups


Most groups will be stage of life and geography based, with occasional availability based groups and, as our initiative evolves, leaving the potential to expand to interest based groups.​​​​​​​


The following groups currently have openings for October 2019 (please check back often as new groups will be added):


  • Bay Point Neighborhood​​​​​​​
  • Parents 40s & 50s (All Genders)
  • More to come, stay tuned…​​​​​​​


To register for one of the above groups, to suggest a group that you don’t see listed, or simply to learn more about Panim el Panim, the Temple Beth Sholom small group initiative, please contact Director of Membership Greg Lawrence | 786-364-4413.
