Full course description
One-time, online, 60-minute session.
Join workshopSHABBAT for an inspiring conversation with Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie, Founding Spiritual Leader of Lab/Shul NYC and the creator of Storahtelling, Inc. Rabbi Amichai has been hailed as “an iconoclastic mystic” by Time Out New York, a “rock star” by the New York Times, a “Judaic Pied Piper” by the Denver Westword, a “maverick spiritual leader” by The Times of Israel and “one of the most interesting thinkers in the Jewish world” by the Jewish Week, and we're thrilled to have him share his insights (and maybe some secrets) on the Shabbat gathering as a tool for transformation and transcendence. We'll explore what works and what's translatable for Shabbats on campus. Hosted by workshopSHABBAT consultant, Alison Laichter, this will be an interactive discussion that will include time for Q&A.

Rabbi Amichai is a member of the Global Justice Fellowship of the American Jewish World Service, a founding member of the Jewish Emergent Network, and serves on the faculty of the Reboot Network. Since 2018 he serves on the Advisory Council of the International School for Peace – a Refugee Support Project in Greece.
