Please join us at the RRA Convention this coming March 26-29, 2017 at the stylish Embassy Suites in downtown Portland, Oregon.
We will come together to explore the timely topic of “Peoplehood and People,” engaging in conversations with both scholars and activists, while all the time learning from colleagues doing diverse and important work in the United States and abroad. Among the questions we will ask: What does it mean to be part of the Jewish people in the twenty-first century? How do we identify as – and work to serve – Jews in the mainstream and on the margins? What stories can we share to help us better understand our rabbinic roles and the different communities we serve?
Our program will include plenary sessions on both “Peoplehood” and “People,” with participants focusing on theoretical underpinnings as well as some of the practical implications and opportunities for us as rabbis. Workshops throughout the convention will allow for in-depth and takhlis explorations across a number of professional disciplines.
Your voice is an important part of these conversations! We know it can be hard to get away, but we also know the power of being together in community – especially at this time of uncertainty and challenge. We hope you will join us as we reconnect, learn, daven, support, and laugh with one another.
In addition to the programmatic opportunities, we are also focusing on ways to show our appreciation to our members. To that end, for the first time, the RRA is pleased to invite you to the President’s Dinner on Tuesday night of the Convention as our guests, at no additional charge.
We look forward to seeing you this March in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and to welcoming you to a wonderful RRA Convention!
Melissa Heller and Isaac Saposnik
