Over 30 DJC members met for our second of nine community conversations to explore and share why it matters to us to be part of Jewish life and part of a Jewish community.
It was a fantastic second session in our Year of Wrestling Together, a thought-provoking and moving evening that demonstrated the depth and diversity of our community and our willingness to trust each other with our experiences and explorations.
During the Children’s Jewish Studies Program on November 12, a smaller group of 15 DJC members, several of whom have children in the JS program, met to explore the same topic. There were interesting overlaps and differences between the two conversations. In this session, there was more focus on questions about whether or not it matters that our children and grandchildren are engaged with Judaism, why it matters, and what our hopes are for the Jewish future.
Each participant contributed a message or idea they wanted to pass on to DJCers who were not able to make it to the conversations. Please read the full report.
