Discount code for Core and Seed members: NEWSHUL (makes the tickets $18)

Enjoy an evening with a spiritual leader whose tradition and background will be a mystery until you arrive! The idea is to learn new things, build your spiritual toolbox, and show that we're all more alike than we are different.

We'll spend some time learning from our spiritual leader about their tradition and practice, then we'll actually try one of their rituals ourselves. There will be plenty of time for reflection and Q&A, as well as enjoying tasty vegetarian food & refreshing beverages.

We welcome seekers and skeptics alike!

Co-hosted by Danya Shults, founder of Arq, which helps anyone connect with all things Jew-ish in a relevant, inclusive way.
