Join us on Saturday, April 4th as we gather in the JCC's courtyard for our third annual Community Seder! This second night tradition is an all-ages evening of stories and songs, art and ritual, and, of course, food and wine. Ayana Morse will lead us on our journey towards freedom, accompanied by tunes from Deanna Neil, Shannon Smith and Craig Wedren.

Tickets are $40 for adults and $12 for children ages 3-17. The price includes wine for grown-ups, childcare for little ones, and a delicious, vegetarian-friendly dinner for all.

 

 

Have you always wanted to get up on stage and tell your story? Michael Kass and Bill Ratner, both multiple-time Moth Story Slam winners, will teach you how in this Storytelling workshop

Participants will have an opportunity to tell their stories at Strength and Surrender: Counting the Days at the end of April-- we'll be picking three names out of a hat, Moth-style, to encourage new faces to get on stage and tell stories about the uneven path that the healing process takes. 

But you don't have to talk about health or healing here! Bill and Michael will help you craft your story and find your voice no matter your subject. FREE with RSVP; email zan@sijcc.net to sign-up.

 

Healing is a process, a long and uneven road that sometimes swerves precariously, and blurs the lines between sickness and health. As a part of Jewish Wisdom and Wellness week, we're bringing together stories from voices within our community as well as encouraging novice storytellers to get on stage and share their tales. 

Jessie Beth Kahnweiler and Eli Rarey will share their sagas; they'll be joined by cantor Rebekah Mirsky and our host, nine-time Moth Story Slams winner Bill Ratner. And, maybe, you! Learn how to put together a story and get yourselfup on stage at our storytelling workshop, above; then, at Counting the Days, we'll draw names from a hat, Moth-style, and invite our picks to share the spotlight. You don't have to attend the workshop to speak at Counting the Days-- everyone with something to say is welcome. 

Free and open to the public if you register here. Questions? Email zan@sijcc.net.
