Elul Day of Reflection

  • Google Community Space 188 The Embarcadero San Francisco, CA, 94105 United States (map)

Have you ever noticed that each year, Jewish educators complain about Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur falling too early, or too late? This year, the chagim are right on time.

Join your colleagues, and two phenomenal teachers - Rachel Brodie and Adina Polen, for a day of reflection as we move through the month of Elul. In the morning, Rachel will offer us a preview of her fall series “A Way with Words: Reflecting on How Jewish Values Play Out In Our Lives.”

Following lunch, Adina will facilitate a series of maker activities to enrich our preparation for the chagim.

Join us for the morning or the afternoon, or plan to be inspired by your colleagues for the full day.

The cost for the full day, including lunch is $72. The morning or afternoon session alone will be $36.

Morning Session is 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Kosher Lunch: 12:30 - 1:30 pm
Afternoon Session is 1:30 - 4:00 pm
