Can one evening be a TURNING POINT? Come find out!
Join us for a unique night of community, connection and learning. We start with Havdallah, followed by dozens of thought provoking classes and interactive workshops on an array of Jewish topics – history, literature, traditional text, spirituality, dance, song, film - taught by rabbis, scholars and educators from all walks of Jewish life. Stick around for the concluding oneg with live music, dancing, and food!
The Feast of Jewish Learning is for all adults, bar and bat mitzvah age and up, no matter your background, practice or affiliation. We offer sessions in English, Hebrew, and Russian. Bring your friends!
The Feast of Jewish Learning / South Peninsula Night of Jewish Unity is made possible in part thanks to the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund and a wide range of community co-sponsors.
