Jewish Homesteading
Limited Capacity seats available

When I moved to Atlanta in 2011 I dreamed of living in a place where I could grow food all around my house. Currently we have bees, chickens, a small orchard and lots of growing space for perennial, annual and medicine plants. Bring Jewish values to our homesteading has always been important to us. During this session we'll explore what Jewish homesteading means to us and even look into our bee hives for people to get a closer look!

Awareness in Action: Becoming a Mensch Through Tikkun Middot Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

Can Jewish practice actually help transform our character? In this session, Rabbi Marc Margolius will describe how integrating mindfulness with attention to core middot (innate spiritual/ethical traits with which we are endowed as beings created in the Divine Image) can help us "catch ourselves" more often before we act or speak unwisely, and come closer to our better selves. Through Tikkun Middot practice, the small and large challenges of everyday life can become a series of opportunities for spiritual and ethical growth, and we can learn to react less often from engrained habit, and respond more often from our innate wisdom.

Meet a Secret Billionaire
Limited Capacity seats available

How I made a billion dollars. I wanted to do my part to bring the benefits of the digital revolution to the entire world so I built a billion dollar global industry unlike any other and that's not a unicorn. Do you want to know how? Come and hear my story. It's a tale of accidents and miracles. A tale of Jews, Christians, Muslims and a Marxist. A tale of fake news and fishing. [Obviously I won't be a secret any more after this talk.] And yes I am single ;)

Torah Yoga: How We Move With Change, Step by Step
Limited Capacity seats available

Times of collective disruption and uncertainty reveal the impermanent and ever-changing nature of our lives so clearly. It can feel like riding a horse backwards! How do we find balance and grounding when we don’t know what is in front of us? In this session we will explore through the embodied Jewish spiritual practice of Torah Yoga how we might learn to find grounding in the present moment in all of its uncertainty and mystery. As we practice embodying a posture of friendly openness to what is not yet revealed, even in the very next breath—we can cultivate the capacity to find our footing in the constantly changing nature of our experience. Suitable for all levels of yoga. Wear comfortable clothes you can stretch in.
