Shabbat Singing 101

101, Interactive, Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Shabbat

Help generate some ruach (spirit) as we get ready for Shabbat. There are songs of praise in our davening (praying), songs composed especially for Shabbat in our prayer books, and special Shabbat songs sung at all three Shabbat meals. Join us as we explore the songs of Shabbat and as we learn some of the songs that have become cornerstones of Shabbat celebration for the Jewish people around the world.

"Just" Giving

A Panel Discussion

Sam "Bodi" Bodenheimer, Simon Greer, Shai Held, Elizabeth Richman

Identity & Responsibility, Interactive, Social Justice

This panel will address the question of priorities in giving, especially in relation to Jews and non-Jews. In the current economic climate, people are experiencing a greater strain on their resources and there is a more intense sense of need. Should Jews prioritize Jewish causes? What about the trend, especially among younger Jews, to direct much of their money and attention to non-sectarian causes? Does this trend reflect disintegrating bonds of peoplehood, or something else? Join us to consider how contemporary Jews should respond to these realities and what role Jewish texts should play in guiding our response.
