Ask Anything: Exploring Jewish Journeys with the Hillel Professionals! (Formerly Beyond Bagels)
Sep 8 @ 7:30 pm – Sep 8 @ 9:00 pm

“Ask Anything” is an opportunity to ask questions about the similarities and differences between various denominations in American Judaism.
We are currently in the Hebrew month of Elul, which is often seen as a time of introspection in preparation for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. In this spirit of reflection, this installment of “Ask Anything” will be an opportunity to hear from Hillel’s community staff members — Rabbi Reed (Conservative), Rabbi Frieberg (Orthodox) and Sarah Magida (Reform Educator) — about their Jewish identities and journeys.
We will begin with a moderated panel discussion, followed by small group discussions among students and staff. You will be able to ask questions, and reflect on your own Jewish journeys, including areas in which you may want to learn or grow more in the coming year. This will be a great opportunity to get to know Hillel staff members better, to gain more nuanced perspectives on Jewish denominations, and to think critically about where you stand along your own Jewish journey, in preparation for the new year. Can’t wait to see you there! 😀
