Our country is more polarized than ever before over social and political issues that are important to us. Many of us struggle with how to engage in important conversations with people in our families and community with whom we disagree without devolving into frustration and disrespect. At Temple Beth El SOC, we  strive to be a place where we experience the unity and fellowship of Klal Yisrael, the Jewish people, and yet we struggle with hearing and understanding each other’s diverse perspectives on what is happening in our country.

We invite you to join us for our three-part program on addressing one of our biggest challenges - building relationships through disagreement. This year, we are working with “Resetting the Table” - an organization that helps communities with courageous communication across divides to design a program that help us see a way through the darkness.



The goals of the program:

1.            To build and strengthen our synagogue relationships through disagreement

2.            To provide a framework for difficult conversations within Jewish tradition

3.            To give people some concrete skills to listen and be heard in difficult discussions

To participate in this program you MUST attend all three sessions as each session builds upon the previous one.  We will have the best chance at a successful outcome only if we all come to each session with a shared base of learning and experience.

Once you register, you will receive a Zoom link and password. We look forward to learning together and to exploring one of the most challenging issues facing our community, and to opening a shared pathway through which  to navigate these turbulent times.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
