Summer Supper with Aliza Sperling
Join us for a summer evening together enjoying beautiful Torah, beautiful food, and fabulous company. HerTorah will gather at Soupergirl Takoma for a light supper and another opportunity to learn from one another. RSVPs gratefully appreciated; seats are limited.
"When Teachers Disappoint Us": Aliza Sperling will take us through a discussion of the role teachers play in our lives, the impact they have, and our expectations of those who teach us -- both formally and informally. An opportunity to reflect on the humanity of our teachers; what we value, need, and expect from them in their roles, and if it is possible to protect ourselves when they let us down. A perfect conversation for summer vacation!
Sponsorships & Dedications are most gratefully welcomed. Reach out to email@example.com
