Feast on this, San Francisco

Last year, I went to this awesome event here in San Francisco, and I babbled on at such great length to the organizers about how great it was that they turned around and hired me to produce it this year. Seriously.
It gives me great pleasure to announce the BJE’s Second Annual Feast of Jewish Learning in San Francisco with special guest Y-Love. This is a Limmud-style event that happens in one giant building on one giant day in the heart of SF. It is the onl event of its kind all year long in our fair city so you won’t want to miss it! Last year, 500 people attended. Let’s make it even bigger. Please RSVP immediately so’s we can get our caterer busy schechting and stuff.
The Bureau of Jewish Education is proud to present:
“Telling Secrets, Revealing Mysteries”
The Second Annual Young Adult Feast of Jewish Learning.

At the JCC of San Francisco: 3200 California St.
Sunday, February 25, 4:00pm to 10:00pm
RSVP with your full name to [email protected] so that we save you a seat, and know how much food to get!
Join 500 of your best friends for twenty-five free workshops on Jewish thought, text, life and love. It’s all free. All you have to do is show up, and we’ll supply the Bay Area’s most exciting Jewish faculty, free kosher food, the West Coast premiere of hip hop artist Y-Love, plus plenty of He’brew beer and schmooze time.
Whether you’re a little yeshiva bachur or a total newbie, there’s something here for you. The program features different branches of Judaism and totally different outlooks on life – academic, secular, orthodox, queer, activist, romantic, businessy…Feeling texty? There’s lots of Talmud and Torah – in both classic and more edgy presentations – on the menu. Spiritually inclined? Learn about Hasidic practice, study Kabbalah – the real thing, or sing the mystical songs called nigguns. How about something completely different, like yoga, theater, baking or film? Each participant can attend two 90-minute workshops from great local presenters like
Rabbi Camille Angel * Sam Ball * Rabbi Eve Ben-Ora * Maya Bernstein * Mitch Braff Dr. Marc Dollinger * Estelle Frankel * Dr. David Henkin * Hazzan Richard Kaplan * Emily Shapiro Katz * Rabbi Lawrence Kushner * Rabbi Sydney Mintz * Rabbi Gedalia Potash * Leah Potash * Bill Selig * Rabbi Henry Shreibman * Maggid Jhos Singer Rabbi Joshua Strulowitz * Reise Tanner * Rabbi Peretz Wolf-Prusan
Bring your friends and partners: this day of education is open to everyone 21-45. Get the full scoop at
Co-presented by the Taube Center for Jewish Life of JCCSF. The Feast of Jewish Learning is made possible, in part, thanks to the Milton & Sophie Meyer Fund and Sinai Memorial Chapel. Bureau of Jewish Education is a beneficiary of the SF-based Jewish Community Federation.

  1. I am highly traumatized that because I am running the event, I am not going to get to sit in on all these sessions. Maybe half of two of them if I’m lucky. Some of them are gonna be mindblowing.
