Description: kick-start a new era in your Jewish learning

In 2018, several communities came together to produce a wholesome Jewish learning programme. With 200 people, 13 speakers and 4 focussed tracks across 4 mornings, Bereishit came into existence with a bang! Welcome to our improved 2019 programme! We present four exceptional, inspiring keynotes and four very different tracks and sessions. And on top of that, we invite you to enjoy top educators and speakers from communities and beyond. Build text skills, explore everyday living, delve into philosophy and discover Jewish wisdom to relationships – it is all here!

For full schedule. see our temporary website
