Jewish Cultural School open house

September 8, 2013 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Jewish Cultural School, a twice-monthly Sunday School for Secular and Humanistic Jews, will hold an open house and an introduction to being a Secular Jew on Sunday, September 8 at 10:30 a.m. at the Bothwell Center, 2466 8th St. in Livermore.   Head teacher Jamie Ireland will share her upbringing and practices as a Secular Jew and Rabbi Judith Seid, who assists in the school, will discuss the curriculum and Bar/Bar Mitzvah requirements.   Children will engage in activities during the program.  A bagel brunch will be served.

Although the open house is at the Bothwell Center, where Tri-Valley Cultural Jews, which runs the school, meets for holidays, the school meets in Castro Valley, where the students cook, sing, dance, hear stories and learn about Jewish history.  The historical focus is on the rich variety of Jewish life in the often-neglected 2,000 year period between the destruction of the Second Temple in the year 70 and the tragedies and triumphs of the 20th century.
