This morning, instead of going to TI like usual, I, along with the other TI teachers, went to a shul in Chestnut Hill for LimmudBoston, a daylong event of Jewish learning attended by hundreds of Jews from across Boston. I got to go to a number of really interesting sessions. One, with Rabbi Aaron Panken, the President of HUC, was about the origins of Chanukkah. In another, I sat in a circle with 10 people to talk about the “master key” for Jewish leadership (spoiler alert: I’m not sure that we’ve really found it yet. Hopefully there’s some reason I’m doing a whole master’s degree in Jewish leadership :). The last session I went to for the day featured three people sharing their stories of loss- of their mother, wife and husband- to try and find lessons about how to live life. Overall, a great day of learning with the Boston community. And of course, Happy Chanukkah to everyone!
