  • 11:00pm-12:00am ET – A Discussion on Personal Jewish Stories – Hosted by the URJ Hearing the stories of others allows us to imagine how our own lives can and might change - so join Rabbi Leora Kaye (URJ Director of Program) and Rabbi Esther Lederman (URJ Director of Congregational Innovation) for a conversation on personal Jewish stories. We'll hear from others in the Reform Movement about their Jewish journeys, challenges, and adventures, ultimately reminding us that Judaism is as much about where you have been as it is about where you can still go. Register for this session!
