Coffee & Conversation

March 16 2019, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Following our weekly school-wide Asefa (gathering) at 10:00 am, all parents and other adults in the community are invited to the Kahaner for what has become one of our favorite Youth and Family Education traditions. You will have a chance to socialize with other parents, engage in thought-provoking conversation, and enjoy pastries and coffee while your children are downstairs learning or engaged in other activities. Sponsored by the Youth & Family PTA.

This month, we will be joined by Elana Rivel, Director of the Ramah Day Camp. Our days are filled with errands, work, schlepping, cooking, cleaning and other mundane activities. How can we transform some of these moments into Jewish experiences? What can our texts teach us about holiness and how it relates to the every day? Join Elana for discussion and conversation about recognizing the opportunities we have as we go about our daily, busy, lives to make a Jewish moment with, and for, our kids.

Elana Rivel, Director of the Ramah Day Camp, has worked in the field of education for over 30 years. Having worked in positions as varied as teacher, family educator, Hillel program director (We areā€¦Penn State!) to synagogue consultant, she brings a wide perspective and understanding of Jewish community. As a mom of two teens, she is reminded daily of both the joys and challenges of parenting.
