    For Holocaust Education Week

    "Jewish", "Degenerate", "Bolshevik" were terms the Nazis used to describe any music not acceptable to the Third Reich. "Degenerate" meant the content, political view, composer's religion or race. All Jewish musicians and composers were dismissed; many fled and were later killed. Learn how this happened and how people coped.

    Where is its place in contemporary society? What is the role of parents during this transition in a teen's life?

    Bar & Bat Mitzvot are neither in the Torah nor the Talmud, but they have become important occasions for celebration in contemporary Jewish life. Where did this combination of ritual and celebration originate? What does its contemporary experience say about Jewish identity today? How do Bar & Bat Mitzvot connect with the identities of parents as well as life-cycle transitions of children? Led by Bryan Keshen.

    Chanting our Journey from Stuckness to Expansiveness 

    The Passover Haggadah tells us that in every generation one must see oneself as if one had personally experienced Yetziat Mitzrayim (the exodus from Egypt). Matanot Lev's Annie Matan will lead participants on a journey through the themes of the Exodus using Hebrew chants and guided intentions, to support participants in noticing where we are feeling stuck in our lives today and how we can move forward to more expansiveness and freedom.
