Eser Select Registration

Spring/Summer 2019 Classes:

Join us this spring on your #JewishJourney. Eser Select offers 6-8-week learning experiences that give you a forum to converse about issues that matter to you, to connect with other young adults, and to create community.

Please note that some of the logistics (location, dates, etc.) of these classes may change prior to the first class. Registered participants will be notified of any changes, should they occur. Also, check back, as we’ll be posting additional classes soon!

En-ritual-ing Shabbat
In this six-week class, we’ll will explore the various rituals that are found within Shabbat. We’ll dive deep into the hidden meanings behind sacred acts such as candle lighting, kiddush (blessing on the wine), and even the extra soul that one receives on shabbat. We’ll create an inclusive and warm environment that allows participants to feel like their authentic Jewish selves while reaching beyond their comfort zones, and our time together will conclude with a communal shabbat dinner, in which we will put our sessions’ learning to action while experiencing the beauty of shabbat together. Participants will leave the experience feeling prepared and confident to participate in or lead their own Shabbat.

Wednesdays, 7-9 p.m., June 5, 12, 19, 26; July 10, and 17, plus Friday, July, 19
Location TBD
Facilitator: Danny Dubin

Refund Policy
Those who withdraw from class before the first session will be given a full refund. A $35 administrative fee will be deducted from your refund if you choose to withdraw from the class after the first session.

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.
