Arq’s community gatherings are beautiful, inviting, personally enriching experiences inspired by Jewish life, rituals, and people. The theme this month is Gifts & Giving (it’s the holiday season!). In America, Hanukkah has become a big gift giving holiday, and, sometimes, that leaves us feeling like we never have the right gift to give (or cash-strapped!). But everyone has gifts to share. We’ll ask and answer: What are our individual gifts? What gifts of service can we give to each other and to our community at this time of year? Our special guest (and entertainer!) is Ari Herstand, a DIY musician and best-selling author who has bravely, persistently, and successfully tapped into his own gifts, from his looping skills to his business smarts. Everyone is welcome.
