What, specifically, will we be doing at SUMMIT?
Come for shabbos, stay for shabbos
SUMMIT will most certainly make you think. Hard. It may, at points, feel like work (of the best kind). But, it is still shabbos, and the community comes first. Rest assured that at SUMMIT, you will have the opportunity to, well, rest.
You show me yours and I'll show you mine
The ideas that we all bring to SUMMIT about the <Jewish> we (want to) practice and the community we (want to) live in are the heart and soul of our time together. Come prepared to present, discuss, and listen to ideas about Jewish life - changing it, building it, strengthening it. Little is sacred. Be ready to question, and be questioned.
We're not doing this for our health
SUMMIT isn't (just) for fun. SUMMIT is because there aren't enough opportunities to take a structured look at our Jewish selves and our Jewish lives and then, on the basis of what we see, to chart a course of action that will get us where we want to go. At SUMMIT, this is exactly what we will do, collectively and individually.
aka, your SUMMIT dream team
I am a Steinhardt Fellow in Education & Jewish Studies at NYU, where I research how Jewish wisdom can be harnessed on behalf of the quest for meaning in life.
My life’s mission is to use traditional and contemporary Jewish sources to animate and inform the lives of young adults.
By delivering inspired education, I serve a midwife role to Jewish future(s).
I live for discourse: asking, and answering, the questions that matter - and helping those around me learn how to ask and how to answer. A life built on questions!
My passion for Jewish community comes from my time as a Jewish nonprofit professional, a Moishe House resident, a student of Jewish history, an amateur Talmudist, a klezmer trombonist, and, of course, a summer camper!
