*Newly added retreat!* Civic engagement is the process of “working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes" (American Democracy Project). Judaism describes the scene at Mount Sinai as the people being “as one person with one heart” – a powerful statement of an engaged and enthusiastic community. Join us for a unique retreat where we will explore the Jewish values of being engaged in issues pertinent to our home communities, discuss these issues and how they manifest, and strategize for action upon our return!
