Learning at Hillel: Scrolls and Rolls

As part of Hillel at CU’s Tuesday night learning series, “Scrolls and Rolls”, director Hanan Nyberg invites different members of the Boulder Jewish community to come talk with students. This week Becky O’Brien from Hazon came to discuss ways in which we can all simplify our lives.

We began the discussion in a big group by going around and each saying something negative that we want to remove from our lives. We then broke into smaller groups to discuss specific topics in more detail. There was a group for time wasting, gratitude, and how to be more environmentally conscientious. Each group had a reading prompt and questions to start their discussion from. After time spent in the smaller groups, we came back together and shared highlights of our discussions over a delicious sushi dinner. Becky concluded the class by going around the big circle again, only this time we each said something positive we want to focus on adding to our lives. If you are a Jewish buff who enjoys sushi and Jewish learning come by the Hillel House for a future Tuesday class and dinner.
