TELL ME A STORY: JEWISH STORIES AND STORYTELLING
Judaism is a religion of stories. From familiar Bible stories to contemporary film making, Jewish stories are timely and timeless, collective and personal, humorous and tragic. We tell stories of heroes, sages, villains, and fools to share our beliefs, values, struggles and culture. And then, we each add our personal narratives to the story of our people. What do these stories tell us about our past and our present, our relationship with God, and our relationship with ourselves? At the retreat, we will explore stories that range from the traditional to contemporary, and you may even discover your own inner storyteller.
If you have not been to a retreat before, there are so many reasons to consider coming. It's a great weekend of connecting with the temple community, learning during the sessions about our theme, meeting new friends and catching up with old ones, celebrating Shabbat together, and being 'away from it all' in a lovely setting near Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. We will have programs for all ages, and the retreat is especially recommended for those who are new to the temple.
