IYUN is a multi-week conversational group for people hungry to discuss the major questions of a life well-lived—all through the prism of Jewish tradition. In this series, “Jewish Wisdom for Life’s Great Questions,” interfaith couples will come together and explore how Jewish texts address big questions, and how we can apply these lessons and practices to our everyday lives. Learn more about IYUN.
Questions will include:
- What is the role of gratitude in our lives?
- Is forgiveness important?
- How do we present ourselves to the world?
- Who am I responsible for?
- What is my relationship with God and who is the God I don’t believe in?
