Telling Our Stories

Telling Our Stories: Leading up to Passover, the ultimate Jewish story-telling experience, we will explore our own family’s histories and stories.
Join Kayli, Rebecca and a group of peers for a cohort-based experience at the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History. We will use its award-winning collection as our inspiration for investigating our own Jewish stories and histories. Together we will learn, laugh, and create.

We will meet weekly for 4 sessions at the museum, including a culminating session during the Freedom Seder Revisited. Dinner will be served at each session. All session will be 6:30-8:30 PM unless otherwise noted.

Session dates and some of the themes we will be discussing:

  • Monday, February 27th: Journeys; Where have we come from and where are we going? Lech Lecha

  • Wednesday, March 8th: Storytelling as a central theme in our Jewish history and culture. Higaditah L’Bincha – the central theme of the haggadah, passing the stories down through the generations.

  • Monday, March 13th: From slavery to freedom. Avadim Hayinu – once we were slaves and now we are free. Exploring stories in Jewish history that focus on moments of liberation and redefinition.

  • Freedom Seder Revisited, Monday, March 20th (6 – 9 PM): What does freedom mean to you?

The cost of this cohort is $36 which includes your fee for the Freedom Seder Revisited. There will be at least 4 dinners included in the program plus an abundance of snacks! No one will be turned away if they are unable to pay. If you have any questions please reach out to Kayli to learn more!
