Eser Spring 2019 Registration
What would Maimonides say if he lived now? How would our reading of the Torah change if it were on an iPad rather than a scroll? We update our phones, we update our operating systems, why not update our Judaism?
Join Eser in Spring 2019 for “Ten Millennial Updates to Jewish Living.” We’ll explore traditional perspectives while giving voice to what Jews in their 20s and 30s seek now. Over the course of the 10 weeks — from the first week in March through mid-May — Eser groups will gather throughout Greater Boston to converse about diverse topics including race, love and sex, the passage of time, the Holocaust, bioethics, Jewish humor and more.
Come connect and create community with us this spring while we download the “Ten Millennial Updates to Jewish Living!”
What is Eser?
Eser is Hebrew for 10, a number with special significance in Judaism. Eser brings together individuals in their 20s and 30s for conversations in neighborhood living rooms to build connection and community.
