A little about workshops…
- Workshops are an hour long: mornings (Tuesday-Friday, 9:25-10:25am), afternoons (Tuesday-Thursday, 3:20-4:20pm), and Shabbat afternoon (Saturday, 4:30-5:30pm).
- Workshops are a great way for our community to further learn with/from each other.
- Workshops can be presented in any format, from discussion to hevrutah (paired learning) to lecture to… interpretive dance! Whatever format the teacher/facilitator best thinks conveys the material.
- Finally, workshops are volunteer run; I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the amazing teachers for sharing their expertise, knowledge, ideas, and resources with our community!
So many workshops, how will I choose?
- Check out the Sustaining Havurot track (workshops identified with “SH”), for workshops that offer skills-building, programming ideas, and help for getting your minyan or havurah off the ground, back on track, or reinvigorated.
- Looking for a more hands-on approach? Look for the Art designation on workshops that will let your creative side loose.
- Want to spend an hour singing? You’ll want to look for the ♫.
- Learn from our Hollander Social Justice Fellow and other members of the community in Social Justice-themed workshops (“SJ”).
- If you’re hungry to learn about food, and what and how we eat, look for the beet (❧).
- You can also dive into texts (“T”).
- After that, you’ll just have to read the descriptions. There are many more workshops that do not fall into those categories…
Please note that a special workshop will be held during breakfast in the dining hall. Look for Eatitude, Eating + Gratitude on Tuesday and Wednesday, 7:30-8:30am, in the “under the ramp” room of the dining hall.
But wait, there’s more!
If you have a great idea for a workshop that wasn’t on the schedule, or were too shy to offer one in advance, or just had a great idea for a discussion, you can offer a spontaneous workshop this week! Go to the office, get some paper, find out which room is free for your renegade workshop, and post a notice on the bulletin board on the way to the dining hall. Don’t forget to include a workshop title, a few keywords to get folks interested, and the day and time (morning or afternoon workshop slot), along with the location.
For more information, for help with a spontaneous workshop, to submit a workshop for next year, or to give feedback, please contact Benjamin Maron or firstname.lastname@example.org.
