Join Cantor Evan Kent for a three-session Lunch and Learn. Jews are a storytelling people and in this three-part workshop we will learn how to develop and tell our own stories from a distinctly Jewish perspective. We will learn how to find the extraordinary in the everyday as well as to speak from our heart and share our own stories. Through storytelling, we express our own truths, share emotions, and create memories.

You can also watch on YouTube or our Livestream.
