This year the Bereishit Conference is all online, and all here! We have enthralling keynotes from refusenik Yosef Mendelevitch, Lord Mann, Rabbi Warren Goldstein, United Hatzalah's Eli Beer and Mossad's Danny Limor. We have fascinating interviews with James Libson, inspirational nurse & cancer survivor Libbie Goldstein, a review of the year with Ilana & Daniel Epstein, and a host of superb educators.
In our breakouts - you can choose your track: Jewish Horizons (food, history and beyond), Jewish Practice (practical Jewish law), Relationships (Jewish wisdom on building and improving relationships) and our famous Text Track (exploring Jewish texts and exciting cases). There is also an evening course for young families about the "Keys to Authentic Happiness" - with family supper too!
Bereishit is a cross-communal learning programme initiative. The goal is for each participant to come away more inspired, more knowledgeable, and with a thirst for more. To do this we provide meaningful, relatable and enjoyable Jewish learning options and sessions for whatever your level is.
In 2018, several communities came together to produce a wholesome, practical Jewish learning programme. With 200 people, 13 speakers and 4 focussed tracks across 4 mornings, Bereishit came into existence with a bang! In 2019 we ran two more programmes, with a combined attendance of 400 people. Welcome to our new 2020 virtual programme.
