9:00-10:00pm CT – Ahavat Olam: Love, Torah, and Great Music – Hosted by the ACC

All you need is love! Ahavat Olam, sung in the evening service, praises God for having shared the Torah with us - a gift which can be seen as God's greatest expression of love.  Together with Cantor David Berger of KAM Isaiah Israel Congregation in Chicago, IL (Scholar in Residence for the American Conference of Cantors), we'll dig into some classical rabbinic sources, contemporary reflections, and sample pieces of the amazing music that bring this love song to life.

10:00-11:00pm CT – A Discussion on Personal Jewish Stories – Hosted by the URJ 

Hearing the stories of others allows us to imagine how our own lives can and might change - so join Rabbi Leora Kaye (URJ Director of Program) and Rabbi Esther Lederman (URJ Director of Congregational Innovation) for a conversation on personal Jewish stories. We'll hear from others in the Reform Movement about their Jewish journeys, challenges, and adventures, ultimately reminding us that Judaism is as much about where you have been as it is about where you can still go.
