Judaism for Grownups: Small Bites for Busy People

AN EVENING OF CELEBRATION AND REFLECTION

Tuesday, June 13, 7:00-9:00pm

Participants' home in Berkeley

All those who've participated in any of this year's Tour of Jewish History and Thought or Judaism for Grownups classes are invited to this gathering.

 

We will ... reflect on what's been most meaningful from our learning ... share feedback on this year's classes and on topics and formats for future classes ... and celebrate with wine, cheese, and desserts in a beautiful home.

HOW: To register for the celebration click email Rabbi Bridget.

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Join us to learn, discuss, and explore how Jewish issues might connect to your life. Rabbi Bridget will lead us in exploring this topic in an environment in which no assumptions are made about prior Jewish knowledge.

 

WHO: All are welcome. You don't have to be Jewish to draw on the riches of Jewish wisdom!

 

HOW: The fee for the session is $25. Click here to register. 

SERIES: This is part of a 15-session series, Judaism for Grownups: Small Bites for Busy People, taught by Rabbi Bridget Wynne. In an open environment, in which no assumptions are made about prior Jewish knowledge, this series offers a chance to explore the compelling stories, provocative ideas, and rich traditions that make Judaism a distinct approach to becoming a more mindful and moral human being.

Come for one session, a few, or the entire series.

WHEN AND WHERE: We meet twice monthly on the first and third Tuesday of the month, 7:00-9:00pm, November-June, in a participant's home in Berkeley. Please see below for a list of dates and topics.
