Do you know the difference between Orthodox and Reform Judaism?
Do you know what a Passover Seder is or that it includes drinking 4 glasses of wine customarily?

Join us for a two hour Sensitivity Training that will answer these questions, many more and give you tangible things you can do in your practice/center to ensure you are able to serve the Jewish community in a culturally sensitive and competent manner.
