Jewish Holidays

Which lessons give you comfort and which lessons do you wish others would embrace differently? What does this holiday remind you of? How does your family-- or different parts of your family-- celebrate this holiday?


How is what is happening politically, in the U.S. or in Israel, affecting you personally? What conversations are your peers having? What conversations do you wish your peers were having? What resources are you grateful for and why? Are your politics a reflection of your Jewish values? How so? In what ways do you have tension with those around you? How do you maintain relationships with those who you disagree with?
