What Yiddish Tells Us About Being Jewish
Hot Topics is a monthly training and practice group in conducting heated or controversial conversations.
Folks in our community who have an interest in listening well during heated conversations are invited to this 2 hour training in Compassionate Listening. Prior experience with CL or related techniques is helpful but not required.
From 7-9 PM, we'll review CL basics, followed by a series of exercises and practice sessions on asking curious open-ended questions.
So many people are interested in these important skills of good listening and skilled communication. We plan this first event as the beginning of a series of trainings and practices over late winter and spring.
There is a custom on this first night commemorating Shavuot, the time of receiving the torah, to gather and learn together until midnigth or even dawn.... or in our case... until our respective bedtimes!
Your contributions are welcome. What Torah teachings do you love? DO you have a prayer dance or poem that enlivens torah in you? Contact rabbi(@)templeisraelgreenfield.org to slot a time to share your torah teaching.
