East Bay Shorts

Sign up for Weekday J and get the latest on what's happening in the Jewish Bay Area.

The program will include a panel of community members discussing the communal, practical and personal aspects of tahara. That will be followed by a question and answer period. Workshop participants will then break into small groups to discuss topics ranging from Jewish attitudes toward the body to fears about performing tahara.

The workshop will take place at the synagogue, 1630 Bancroft Way. For more information, call Susan Somerville at (510) 547-8268 or Edna Stewart at (510) 451-5350.
