Winter break means a GREAT opportunity to do Jewish on your own time – and it doesn't necessarily mean spending lots of time on it. Here are some ways to do so while Shoresh is on a break:
Family education programs are opportunities for parents and students to learn together, as I've written about before. Our four-part family education series about Living Judaism at Home is a great example of how parents and students can learn concurrently and together to think through how to live Jewishly at home through discussions, projects, and activities.
The election results have elicited a number of reactions, and parents have had in-depth and emotional conversations with their children about the country and how the election of Donald Trump will affect their families. On Friday, Rabbi Reeves led a discussion at Shabbat evening services about the election, including the Jewish perspective and texts and concrete actions to take.
Though it's just getting colder out, summer will be here again before we know it! At the family Shabbat service on November 18, we will welcome guests from our Reform Judaism camp in Wisconsin, OSRUI (Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute). Susan Alexander and Denisre Heimlich will celebrate Shabbat with us and answer questionsfrom prospective parents and campers after services. They'll tell us about camp, answer questions, and get to know Shoresh!
