Connect with your partner and other couples to explore essential conversations for navigating life’s journey, such as ritual, money, rest, and legacy. This cohort is designed for beloveds – young adult couples on the road to committed partnership or early years of marriage. Whether you identify as Jewish, Jew-ish, interfaith, queer or are in a relationship with someone who identifies as such, Jewish tradition offers a framework for meaningful conversations between partners committed to their shared future, with love. Through guided questions, texts, and discussion prompts, we’ll engage in deep conversation and reflection! Each gathering begins with dinner and an opportunity to connect with other couples, and the chance to dive into Jewish learning and conversation. Registered couples will be asked to fill out an introductory questionnaire and will be offered a 30-minute session with Rabbi Gubitz so she can get to know you! Our session focused on money will be in partnership with Ariel Nathanson from Finances for Feminists.
