What to Expect

 This creative and interactive experience will bring together about 25 Jews from DC for three days in order to broaden the conversation about what it means to be Jewish today. We will unpack 21st century American Judaism and explore alternative models for expressing that identity. Of course, you'll have lots of fun doing it with other great Jewish 20s and 30s from DC.
