KAREN EVERETT & MYRA GLAJCHEN, CO-CHAIRS
This year’s Scholar-in-Residence weekend brings to WJC one of America’s most influential rabbis—renowned TED speaker, Rabbi Sharon Brous. Since founding Congregation IKAR in Los Angeles, Brous has been a leading voice to reinvigorate Jewish life through spirituality, morality and social justice. In five engaging sessions, Rabbi Brous will challenge us to rethink and reclaim our own religious practice:
Friday Community Dinner: What does it take to reclaim a soulful, purposeful, inclusive vision of religious life?
Saturday Morning Sermon: Is G-d the Eternal Healer or does G-d help those who help themselves?
Saturday After-Kiddush: Now or Ever: Pursuing justice in an unjust world
Saturday Evening Ambassadors Dinner: Intimate Conversation for Ambassador Level Supporters
Saturday Night Dessert: Anti-Semitism: Are Jews Eternal Outsiders Looking In?
Sunday Brunch: Parenting With Moral Clarity and Courage
Be engaged! Be inspired! Enjoy a weekend filled with learning, inspiration, and community! Join us for one, some or all the presentations. For more information or to register, see the enclosed brochure, call Rosie at 914-698-2960 or visit wjcenter.org/sir.
