Connecting to Sand & Sea: A Passover Hike & Learn

Saturday, April 8 @ 11:00 am1:00 pm

Get your body and spirit into Passover during this hike and learn led by GTU Professor Sam Shonkoff

Get your body and mind into the Passover spirit by joining us for a learning session at the intersection of sand and sea. Passover is a holiday that connects us to the elements. This hike and learning session will bring us into contact with the elements of desert and sea, as we learn about their literal and metaphorical representations throughout the story of Passover and Judaism as a whole.

We will meet at a public location along the coast in Marin. Meeting location will be provided via email the week before the event. For any questions, please contact jrosenberg@marinjcc.org.

Please come with water, something to sit on (blanket or towel), appropriate shoes and ready for a moderate walk of about two miles.

Sam Shonkoff is the Taube Family Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies at the Graduate Theological Union. A scholar of modern Jewish spirituality, he is the editor of Martin Buber: His Intellectual and Scholarly Legacy, co-editor of Hasidism: Writings on Devotion, Community, and Life in the Modern World, and author of a bunch of articles and book chapters. Sam taught formerly at Oberlin College, received his PhD in History of Judaism from the University of Chicago Divinity School, and grew up between Berkeley and Camp Tawonga.
