Jewbilee! A Day of Jewish Learning
Sunday, January 28, from 1:00-6:30pm
Jewbilee is an annual celebration of Jewish learning. The afternoon is divided into sessions, with many classes, workshops and performances happening simultaneously during each session. You choose what you want to do.
Hundreds of participants, and more than 35 teachers, artists, educators, speakers, and performers focusing on this year's theme: ReJEWvenation.
Here are examples of last year's (January 2017) session topics:
- A discussion of Michael Chabon's new novel Moonglow, the New York Times book of the year.
A screening of the Academy Award-winning documentary Strangers No More about an extraordinary school in Tel-Aviv, where tolerance isn't just part of the curriculum but a way of life.
The keynote talk and dinner: Darren Kleinberg discussing his new book, Hybrid Judaism.
Ticket prices for 2018 will be announced soon.
Information about food for 2018 will be announced soon.
The Jewbilee Ideal
The Jewbilee ideal is that the entire Jewish community can come together for a day under one roof, despite our many differences, and celebrate being Jewish and what that means to each of us. Through a diverse program lineup--including rabbis from all denominations, professors from various Bay Area colleges and universities, students, teachers, artists, cooks and performers--our goal is to present a diversity of Jewish beliefs, political orientations, cultures and experiences. Jewbilee is a day to try on a different Jewish hat; a new idea, a new practice, a new conversation.
