50/50 Day | Congregation Beth Am

50/50 Day

A Beth Am Women Event

Did you know that 50 countries around the world are led by women today? This fun and enlightening Beth Am Women event is about gender equality, with an innovative Mussar twist. We’ll be part of a community of millions of people across the U.S. and in 27 countries participating in 50/50 Day events, a follow-up to International Women's Day.

We’ll be meeting with Greg Marcus, Beth Am Board member, leader of the Beth Am Mussar group and author of The Spiritual Practice of Good Actions: Finding Balance Through the Soul Traits of Mussar. As a great introduction to the topic, we'll watch Tiffany Shlain’s latest short film 50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present, and Future of Women + Power which explores what it will take to have a gender-balanced world.

Then, we’ll launch into some reflective Mussar activities to explore how this Jewish practice can help each and every one of us create the world we’d like to see. You’ll get to know yourself better, and feel empowered to take action. Together, we’ll pave the way for personal transformation on the path of tikkun olam.

Join us for a fantastic evening in community, and be sure to bring a friend! Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.
