Atideynu 201: Conversations in Search of a Meaningful Judaism

Facilitated by Rabbi Neal Rose
Join us as we explore, in conversation and discussion, rather than lecture, a little about our Jewish past and then about our community's future social, emotional and spiritual aspirations. And by community, we mean the Jews at B'nai Amoona, in St. Louis, America, Israel and the world. We plan, over the course of the year, to bring in a multitude of guest Rabbis, teachers, artists, writers, etc. to join us.
