Room Registration Closed for Beth Am's Summer Retreat at Asilomar
It’s time to re-Jew-venate at Beth Am’s summer retreat at Asilomar!
Enjoy a relaxing and inspiring weekend on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula. Learn something new, take a walk on the beach and spend quality time with your Beth Am community. It’s a great opportunity to get to know fellow congregants and members of the Beth Am clergy in a casual atmosphere.
At Asilomar, we’ll introduce Beth Am’s education theme for the 2018-2019 year: "Sex and Gender in Judaism." Together we'll explore issues around sexuality and gender in Judaism, from ancient understandings of gender (there were more than two sexes!) to questions about what it means to be a man, woman or transgender person in the Jewish community today. How can Jewish tradition help us navigate issues of gender expression, equality and sexual ethics, and where does Judaism itself still need to grow?
To sign up to attend, please download, complete and return the sign up form. The deadline for room registration has passed.
As always, there are scholarship funds available. Please be in touch with Rabbi Sarah for more information.
