Join us for music, a potluck meal, discussion and teachings on impermanence, and a demo of our school!
The themes for the evening will be Sukkot and Impermanence.
There will also be a chance for kids to demo our school program and join one of three pathways to create their own unique exhibition of the concepts we discuss.
Tickets are $10 for individuals, $20 for families, and free for Shtiebel School members.

A DIFFERENT MODEL OF JEWISH EDUCATION
At Shtiebel, we believe that Jewish learning should be engaging, deep, and fun. To that end, instead of dividing kids up by age group, we divide kids up into pathways according to their interests and learning styles. Learning groups learn how to teach themselves, solve challenges and present creative exhibitions on their knowledge under the supervision of their Guides. The bar/bat mitzvah experience at Shtiebel culminates in a final exhibition of knowledge on the part of the learner. Much of the Hebrew language learning is done online and with tutors in an engaging and supportive way.

Our events are experimental by nature. They are transformative encounters with the best food, music, art, and philosophical discussion.
Our davenning is part jam session, part salon, part potluck, extracting the creative spirit at the heart of religion. Shtiebel encourages participation, engaging you to find your own personal connection within Jewish tradition.
