Shaboom! Come celebrate Shabbat under the stars at the Bender JCC. Welcome in Shabbat with Cantor Dave and our friends from Minyan Oneg Shabbat, the Bethesda Jewish Congregation and Sally Heckelman! Bring a picnic and enjoy dinner after services. We’ll have wine, challah, water and chairs! Bring your friends and family! Rain or Shine! Click here to RSVP!
To create the healthy, safe, and just world we all want we will have to change our behavior. While that may seem like a heavy lift, fortunately psychologists are learning more and more about how to make that happen. And it turns out that Judaism may be part of the answer. Learn how you can be a part of the solution to climate change, finding inspiration in Judaism while you do it.
Join environmental psychologist, Mirele Goldsmith for a discussion and some guidance about how we can help!
After shabbat services and dinner we’ll discuss world affairs and security risks with Joel Rubin, a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and currently Adjunct Faculty at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz School of Public Policy and Management in Washington, DC. A seasoned practitioner of American foreign policy and politics, Joel has nearly 20 years of federal experience in government, advocacy, and both Chambers of Congress. Sign up here.
Join us for Shabbat as good as it gets! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/shaboom-tickets-45837965589
