Open Minds, Open Hearts: Exploring Class Dynamics in our Kehilla Community

October 7 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

A Free Experiential Workshop for ALL Kehilla Members: RSVP here by 9/26.

Facilitated by Kehilla member Penny Rosenwasser and members of Kehilla’s Working Class/Low Income Group

Please note a sharp start time set for 1 pm. Leave time for parking.

⧫ Get to know your fellow congregants (and yourself!) on a deeper level

⧫ Gain understanding and compassion as we learn about our differences and similarities, and the ways that we have all been influenced by society’s concepts of Jews, money, and power

⧫ Recognize the gifts you’ve received from your class backgrounds, and how you can utilize this awareness in Kehilla and the wider community

⧫ Brainstorm ways that Kehilla can be more responsive to and inclusive of members who are working class / lower income
