Jewbilee is an annual celebration of Jewish learning. The afternoon is divided into sessions, with many classes, workshops and performances happening simultaneously during each session. You choose what you want to do.
Hundreds of participants, and more than 35 teachers, artists, educators, speakers, and performers, including a teamof Lehrhaus Judaica’s most highly regarded teachers, focusing on this year’s theme: ReJEWvenation.
Food is included in ticket price! Kosher snacks will be available throughout the event at various stations throughout the building. The event will end with a mixer where a light kosher dinner of sushi and other foods will be available, as well as beer and wine and live music!
The Jewbilee Ideal
The Jewbilee ideal is that the entire Jewish community can come together for a day under one roof, despite our many differences, and celebrate being Jewish and what that means to each of us. Through a diverse program lineup–including rabbis from all denominations, professors from various Bay Area colleges and universities, students, teachers, artists, cooks and performers–our goal is to present a diversity of Jewish beliefs, political orientations, cultures and experiences. Jewbilee is a day to try on a different Jewish hat; a new idea, a new practice, a new conversation.
The learning at Jewbilee 2018 is dedicated to Dianne Portnoy (z”l), who dedicated so much to Jewbilee.
