IKAR of JUDAISM: Home Edition
We’re willing to bet that taking on some fairly simple, totally accessible spiritual practices can actually change your life. This year, we want to provide you the tools and opportunities to explore and experiment with some of Judaism's greatest treasures – age-old practices that have the potential to change the way you wake up and go to sleep, the way you eat and drive and schmooze and think.
Meet IKAR of JUDAISM: Home Edition. We're taking the learning to a living room in your neighborhood, with monthly house parties all over the city and valley. And we’re challenging you to turn good intentions into action by experimenting with a new spiritual practice each month (whether or not you make it to the house party). Don’t worry – we’ll help you find something that’s just uncomfortable enough, whether you’re a rookie or an old Jewish pro. We’re pretty convinced that by the end of the year you’ll see the difference.
