Lead a Peer-Led Session
We want you (yep, that’s right YOU!) to submit an idea that you would like to share at Natty Con with residents and MHWOW hosts. One of the things that makes Natty Con so special is that over half of the training sessions are led or co-led by a resident or MHWOW host. What “Moishe Magic” have you experienced with your community that is “more than a feeling” (spoiler alert: that’s the Natty Con 2019 theme!) Your “magic” might be new ways of outreach, dynamic programming ideas, or lessons learned when things didn’t go according to plan.
This year, we are dividing learning into three sections: Moishe Essentials, Moishe Immersives, and QuickTakes.
Moishe Essentials are 1 hour sessions of learning about foundational Moishe House knowledge. Think about what you wish you would have known at the very beginning. Or if you are new to the Moisheverse, what do you think you need to know to start off on the right foot? Past sessions have included:
- Dollars and Sense: Managing Your Monthly Budget
- Moishe Marketing: Keep it Short and Simple
- On One Foot: Facilitating Accessible Jewish Learning
Moishe Immersives let you deep dive into a particular topic for 90 minutes. These sessions will be more niche and allow residents and hosts to explore new topics or ideas. Keep in mind, attendees will have varying degrees of background info. Facilitators should feel comfortable teaching and answering questions from anyone. Check out what has been done in the past:
- Israel Programming: Beyond the Hummus
- Risky Business: Not Just a Tom Cruise Movie
- Lost in Translation: Exploring Jewish Cultural Narratives
A QuickTake is a 10-15 minute casual conversation on a topic that could benefit a Moishe House community. You would lead a session during some of our flexible programming times (i.e. a meal, free time, or during an open session). Check out what has been done in the past:
- Building a Community Board
- Really Real Relating: Making Meaningful Connections
- Moishe Mindset in Action
