As a follow-up to our Scholar-in-Residence Program ("Open Hearts & Minds: Celebrating Our Diversity as a Community") which featured Dr. Keren R. McGinity, USCJ Interfaith Specialist, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee welcomes your participation in congregational conversations about living our values, tradition and change. 

These conversations will be facilitated by Rabbi Philip Warmflash and provide the opportunity to dialogue with other congregants in small groups. Having presented in the past at educational and leadership forums locally, Rabbi Warmflash is no stranger to the Greater Hartford Jewish Community. During the course of his career, he has provided consultation, mentoring and coaching to Jewish organizations and their leadership teams in areas such as member engagement, decision-making and change management.
The facilitated conversations are scheduled for the following times and will each last 90 minutes:
  • Monday, May 23 at 7:30 PM at The Emanuel
  • Tuesday, May 24 at 12:00 PM at The Emanuel
  • Tuesday, May 24 at 3:00 PM at The Emanuel
