Brainstorm 2016 poster

El Niño has kind of wimped out on us, so it's up to you, East Side Jews: let's make it rain. (Ideas, that is.)

ESJ was founded with an eye towards reimagining ritual and rediscovering overlooked holidays, so this year we're going back to those roots. We'll tell you about a couple of holidays that we think are undercelebrated, and then ask you to help us figure out how we can bring them back to life. (And yeah, there will be time at the end for free-form suggestions too.)

Join us in the SIJCC's brand-new Box space on our Silver Lake campus on Tuesday, February 23 at 8:00 pm. We'll have pizza and beer, so RSVP to so we can be sure to save you a slice!
