Na’aleh: Learning to Listen
with Compassion


A two-part series for professionals working in the Jewish community. Please plan to attend both sessions.

April 15, 2021 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am

United States + Google Map
Free for supporting organizations

April 15 and April 22

No matter the role you play in your organization, being attuned to the changing needs of your co-workers as we navigate the ongoing pandemic and imagine a “transformation” of an eventual return to the office can be fraught with emotions. Listening with both ears and a heart creates space for differences in values, opinions and attitudes, and allows you to manage your response to support yourself and others during this time of transformation.

  • This event is complimentary for professionals of supporting organizations. View supporting organization list.
  • $18 is the suggested registration fee for other communal professionals.

Zoom link will be provided in your confirmation email.

Programs are open to professionals of all backgrounds and roles working in the Jewish community.

Limited to 20 people. Additional registrants will be put in a waiting list.
