THIS ISN'T SOMEONE ELSE'S AGENDA. IT'S YOURS.
What's on the agenda at UnCamp
What does it mean to be a Jew today and why should I care? How should we respond to anti-semitism? What does Judaism say about love, technology and culture, gender issues and world peace? What are our responsibilities to ourselves and to others?
The Jewish UnCamp is your chance to explore life’s big questions through the lens of Judaism. And with over three thousand years of Jewish wisdom to tap into, it’s going to be a fascinating few weeks.
At the UnCamp you’ll find out what love really means. What the nature of the soul is. What to do about anxiety, sadness and feelings of insecurity. Why Jewish medical ethics is more important today than ever. How understanding the human psyche can prevent a lot of heartache. What Jews believe. What the secret to Jewish dating is. Why we keep kosher. What dreams mean. How faith, free will and reincarnation are connected. Why Jews have kept Shabbat through thick and thin. What the key to happiness is. What about other religions. Why bad things happen to good people. And more, much more.
At the nightly Q&A session, no topic is off limits. This isn’t someone else’s agenda, it’s yours.
Art & More
Ceramics. Acrylics. Collage. Stained glass. Watercolor. Multi-media. Roll up your sleeves, make a mess and have a good time with it. Our art teacher has a philosophy about this. Art helps us make choices and identify personal limitations. When to take control, when to let go, and how to step back to behold the resulting beauty. Heady existential stuff. You’ll like it.
