The Omer – Thriving in the Desert

The days between Passover and Shavuot are called the Omer.  It is the time in the desert between leaving Egypt and receiving the Ten Commandments.  What does this time teach us about how to live our lives today? Can we thrive in the “desert?” Join Beth Huppin, Director of Project Kavod/Dignity, for a Jewish text-based exploration about contemporary connections between the work of JFS and these Omer-related questions. We will serve snacks and bagels, or feel free to bring your lunch.
