Members of the Tribe
In this 6-session quest, we will dive deep into a fundamental, challenging question for Members of the Tribe: "What is the overarching purpose of living Jewishly?" Together we'll examine aspects of what might be considered the Jewish mission, a blend of practices that distinguish us as Jews, and what to do with this idea of being called the "Chosen People." Prepare to explore how Big Jewish Ideas and lessons from our history serve to enrich our actions as individuals and as a people.
