Join JPro San Diego for an afternoon of appreciation and wellness as a contribution to all our professionals working for our Jewish Communal organizations. The professionals sustaining the San Diego Jewish community continue to serve our most vulnerable, foster connection, provide space for Jewish tradition, and ensure San Diego Jewish life thrives. JPro wants to thank YOU for all that you do to keep this community strong. We see this as an investment in your resilience and professional capacity. So please, enjoy some wellness practices, have some fun, reconnect with colleagues, and help us celebrate your contributions.

JPro San Diego will also honor several of our colleagues for their work, including the awardee and finalists of the Michael Jeser Outstanding Jewish Professional Award

Our Afternoon Sessions include:

Art of Intention with Carly Lobenstein: Explore and manifest your personal intentions through art in a tactile workshop focused on creating meaningful pieces from your chosen words.

Jewish Comfort Cooking with Marissa Dates, founder of the Jewish baking blog North Shore to South Bay and member of the Center for Jewish Care staff: Join in for a fun and reflective cooking class! We will spend the session creating our own modern take on the classic Jewish comfort food, blintzes! Bring your creativity and an empty stomach!

Giving Words to Sorrow: Creating Lament Psalms for Our Times with Rabbi Susan Freeman of the Center for Jewish Care at JFS. Join as we reflect on experiences of the last 6 months through the template of Psalms and modern Laments. During this session you will be able to engage and connect with colleagues through a creative writing process culminating in the sharing of insights, prayers, and poetry.

Soulful Soil with Coastal Roots Farms: Ground yourself in the soil with some hands-on activities at Coastal Roots Farm.

Relaxation Station with Ilene Tatro: Come enjoy a cup of coffee and some unstructured time to connect with colleagues and old friends!

*Optional Concluding Excursion: Group trip to Moonlight Beach with Rabbi Berk for an “immersive” experience in the ocean

All food will be kosher.
