Congregation Beth Sholom’s new Introduction to Judaism class aims to satisfy a thirst for deeper Jewish learning.

Congregation Beth Sholom’s new Introduction to Judaism class explores the modern take on traditional Jewish beliefs and practices. The class is co-taught by CBS spiritual leader, Rabbi Dan Ain, and CBS Rabbinic Intern, Amanda Russell. It is designed for individuals and couples from Jewish and various faith and cultural backgrounds who want to gain a deeper understanding of Jewish life through a traditional prism. The inclusive class is perfect for interfaith couples, seekers who had no religious upbringing who want to gain a deeper understanding of Jewish life, those raising Jewish children, individuals interested in conversion, and Jews who want a meaningful Jewish learning experience.

The engaging, university-accredited class aims to reach people where they are, satisfying the thirst for Jewish learning and strengthening the Jewish community. No knowledge of Hebrew is required, but you will learn to read the language as part of the class, in order to enrich your connection to Jewish Heritage.

There will be a focus on lively, open discussion, hands-on learning, and reflection. Rabbi Ain and Amanda have a desire to inspire meaningful, authentic connections to Judaism in his teachings—in a spirit that is inclusive, open, and vibrant.

This class meets once a month, for 8 months, beginning October 11. Dates for subsequent classes are as follows: November 8, December 13, January 10, February 7, March 7, April 11, and May 9.

Each class meets in the CBS Board Room at 6:30 p.m. Registration is now open. The cost is $400 per person and $600 per couple for non-members. CBS members receive a 50% discount.

While in Mr. Scary’s class, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard – and she may need glasses. Add in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade is off and running for Junie B. and gang.

Mountain Flow Yoga at Granlibakken Tahoe Register
Mar 23 @ 9:30 am – 10:45 am

This class is open to all ability levels.
Class Description:
Our true essence is among the trees, the breeze and the natural world. Join Yoga Room teacher Ellie Perry for this all levels flow and dynamic movement yoga class. Ellie will guide you into the breath and with the breath into intentional movements.
Please pre-register for this class to your best ability.
Granlibakken guests, locals, and students of the Yoga Room welcome!
About Ellie: 
I began my yogic journey in my late teens. At first, I was drawn to the practice for its physical benefits since I had always played sports, but was soon rewarded with the mental and emotional effects that yoga can have on one’s life. I suffered from anxiety paired with sleeping problems and found yoga to be an amazing alternative medicine. Since, I have received my 200hr YTT in Bali, Indonesia in order to share such a beautiful gift with any and all who are curious.
I strive to provide students with classes that are accessible for all levels, while presenting a challenge for each individual. I feel that yoga should be a playful activity that also encourages each of us to grow, both mentally and physically, from the experience. I seek to provide a space in which students can gain awareness as well as insight to the workings of their bodies and minds. No matter the skill level or amount of practice one has, I encourage everyone to come play on the mat with me! I am excited to become part of such an awesome community of yogis and look forward to meeting you!

Come share your immigration stories, or your family’s, in a Story Circle, while we snack on “tacos de canasta.” Watch Maria Natividad demonstrate how to make tortillas by hand! Arts & crafts activities for kids!

Blues is a woman @ Rhythmix Cultural Works Register
Mar 23 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Blues is a woman @ Rhythmix Cultural Works |  |  |

Pamela Rose’s BLUES IS A WOMAN is a new theatrical concert with multi-media, celebrating the powerful contribution women in early Blues gave to American culture. These stories and songs, culled from this country’s most disenfranchised group, black women in the early part of the 1900’s, literally gave voice to the feminist movement and popularized our most enduring art form – the Blues. BLUES IS A WOMAN is also an ensemble piece, featuring outstanding Bay Area women blues musicians who sing and tell stories. Their collective voices onstage will represent the myriad unheard voices of the past. This is a theatrical concert in which storytelling by the women musicians onstage is woven around the music, augmenting the powerful, truth-telling, original songs written and popularized by early Blues Women (Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Sophie Tucker). Without ever feeling like a lecture, or sacrificing the improvisational magic of a great Blues concert, this work aims to create a narrative presence as authentic as the music itself. In addition, archival film footage of these ladies in concert will act as counterpoint to the stage performances and ambient photo projections, to transport the audience to the makeshift stages and tent shows from which these powerful songs and women sprang.
