Teen Pizza & Study Session with Guest Rabbi Rachel Weiss

Rabbi Rachel WeissAll JRC 8th-12th Graders are invited to join in on an informal and engaging study session with Rabbi Rachel Weiss (plus pizza!), one of our rabbinic candidates:

Is It All the Same Story?
Exodus, the tale we tell on Passover, is the central "narrative" of the Jewish people. But isn't it all the same story, over and over again? How Exodus, Star Wars, Harry Potter, the Wizard of Oz and Superman connected to our tale of liberation, and why telling this Jewish story is so central to who we are as a people. Please RSVP to Abby Harris-Ridker at [email protected].
