Through the looking glass: our season in review
After a year and a half of postponing face-to-face in-person events, we brought our community back for the entirely new Shabbat by the Sea series over the fall. It was a special and unique experience with different speakers each time that brought different perspectives. Through the lens of Shabbat, these events talked about Sukkot and social justice, LGBTQ+ experiences, and Latinx Jewish traditions. We give gratitude to our speakers, Nate Looney, Trudy Morse, and Analucía Lopezrevoredo, for showing us new pathways of Jewish expression.
As the cold brought us indoors, we experimented with an opportunity to celebrate Chanukah safely. We’re happy to see that our incredible Paint & Sip experience fulfilled that desire! Look through the album below to get a broader story of our events.

What are guests saying about us?
Great event all around – the space, the instructor, the content, the level of difficulty, the pace. Loved it.
Sharing experiences, making new friends, excellent presenters.
I really loved hearing about the ways in which Jewish communities outside of the United States relate to cultural experiences like Día de Muertos. I also very much enjoyed learning from the educator and hearing her speak with passion. The activity at the beginning was also a great way to meet people in a fun and stress-free way.
Meeting new people in a relaxed, welcoming environment.
Our Professional Development events remained virtual and engaging.
In addition to keeping programs accessible this season, we addressed steps to diversify your donor base, explored cryptocurrency fundraising, and learn how to collaborate with influencers.
