I am most likely to be available, in general, during the following timeslots:
To help "thicken" the web of relationships among our chaverim, we would like to pilot a program for chaverim to have one-on-one conversations with each other. You would be matched randomly with a new person once a month or so. Would you be interested in participating?
Yes, and I would volunteer to help run it
For chaverim who want to invest more time, we would like to pilot one or more communities of practice. These would provide space for their members to more intentionally learn from each other, share experiences, and build collective wisdom. The energy to move forward and develop activities would come from the members, with light structuring and logistical support from staff. If you would be interested, check one or more boxes below:
Fighting racism and white supremacy
Tackling Israel and Palestine
Recently ordained clergy working on building a justice rabbinate/cantorate
Clergy working in "Trump country"
Geographically isolated clergy
