Sign Up for This Year's Adult Study Retreat at Asilomar
Spend a relaxing and inspiring weekend on the Monterey Peninsula! Study under the pines, enjoy a Shabbat stroll on the beach and schmooze with friends old and new. It’s a great opportunity to get to know fellow congregants and members of the Beth Am clergy in a casual atmosphere. The Asilomar retreat is designed for adult congregants (B’nei Mitzvah and older).
At Asilomar, we’ll introduce Beth Am’s education theme for the 2017-2018 year: “Jews and Politics.” What does Judaism have to say about politics and government? How might our tradition inform our political beliefs and engagement today? Learning sessions will include: Politics in the Talmud, Jewish Roots of Western Political Thought, How a Political Poem Works — and Why, Political Songs from the Land of Israel, Jews and the Supreme Court and "Why We Went": 16 Rabbis Speak Out from a St. Augustine Jail Cell. Check out a draft of this year's Asilomar schedule.
To sign up, please download, complete and return the registration form by Wednesday, June 7.
