On Wednesday I will head to San Diego along with thousands of other Jews to attend the Union for Reform Judaism’s Biennial convention. I will be meeting with many partners for A Wider Bridge, including people who are interested in learning more about A Wider Bridge (if that describes you, leave a comment on this blog post, send me a tweet @rabbisteinman or contact me via the Biennial app).
I plan on tweeting the Biennial as much as possible. Follow me @rabbisteinman and/or look for the hashtag #biennial13.
There is so much to look forward to at a Biennial convention. Some particular aspects I’m excited for are:
- Reconnecting with friends who live in all parts of the world
- Teaching a session with other leaders leaders called “A RAC Campaign: LGBT Equality and Workplace Protection” on Friday morning
- Hearing music both new and old. I also love the Shabbat Song Session
- Meeting new people
- Amazing prayer experiences
If you can get to San Diego it is not too late to register. There are a lot of different types of registrations (you can register just for Shabbat or one day or the entire convention). If you cannot be in San Diego, check out the Virtual Biennial experience!
See you there!
