Hebrew College adjunct faculty member Caren Levine will share her recent research on emerging American Jewish community models. These examples of sacred Jewish communities and leadership put a premium on relationship building, community organizing, and creating points of intersection between individual exploration and being in community. The communities studied include those that focus on prayer; communities that position themselves as cooperatives, spiritual hubs, or gateways; communities that “do Jewish” together; and communities that provide space to “be Jewish” together. Caren will discuss her findings through the lens of contemporary approaches to Jewish spiritual and educational journeys. As part of this webinar, we will investigate how these models can help us better understand our own educational communities’ potential for growth and change.
