GLT's purpose is to build a community that embraces everyone's unique story, offering meaningful Jewish insight in a personal way. We are a community of people who seek unique and dynamic personal Jewish experiences.
GLT takes a contemporary yet timeless approach to Jewish life as we search for meaningful Jewish answers to real-life questions. Whatever your personal experience or background - traditional or not traditional, interfaith families, Jewish by choice, exploring or revisiting Jewish life - GLT will touch your heart, mind, and soul.
