Ayeka, a new program of adult education for the soul, provides a safe venue for Jews of all backgrounds and affiliations to discover, explore, and deepen our own unique relationship with God. The program’s innovative learning method engages the mind, the heart, and the body through the learning of Jewish texts, honest conversation, and experiential exercises. Jewish texts are a jumping-off point for a series of small-group and one-on-one discussions. The goal is to enable adults to connect deeply with and to be transformed by what they learn.
Get a “Taste” of Ayeka this week, on Thursday, June 23rd at 6:30pm at Bonai Shalom, 1527 Cherryvale Road.
This session is offered free of charge and will be facilitated by Sara Heitler Bamberger, Executive Director of Kevah, a Berkeley-based organization that supports pluralistic study of classical Jewish texts. Over the past year, Kevah and the Israel-based Ayeka program have launched a partnership to support Jewish spiritual education through small group study. Working closely with Ayeka’s founder and director, Aryeh Ben David, Sara has spearheaded the effort to bring Ayeka to Boulder, and has been involved with launching a network of groups that utilize the Ayeka curricula in Denver, Atlanta, Kansas City, and the Bay Area. As a Jewish educator, social entrepreneur and a 6th generation Coloradan, Sara is thrilled to be faciliating a Taste of Ayeka in Boulder. Sara has a BA in Religious Studies from Yale University, an MS in International Relations from Georgetown, and has studied classical Jewish texts at the Pardes Institute for Jewish Studies in Jerusaslem.
We are pleased to offer this unique learning opportunity in partnership with Tuv Ha’aretz thanks to a generous grant from 18 Pomegranates. Several Ayeka groups will be starting in Boulder this summer and fall. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Karli Sherwinter or visit the Ayeka website.
