Shabbat and the Art of Rest: A Discussion with Ezra Klein

Shabbat and the Art of Rest: A Discussion with Ezra Klein
March 26, 7:30-9pm
Chochmat HaLev, 2215 Prince Street, Berkeley, CA 
AND Available for Zoom viewing!

Join New York Times columnist Ezra Klein for an intimate in-person discussion about the simple yet radical notion of the Sabbath. As explored on a recent episode of The Ezra Klein Show, this ancient practice is more than just a respite from work and technology: it invites an entirely different conception of time, morality, rest and community. In this discussion, we’ll tackle how we can build our own modern versions of this practice that helps us bring intentionality to the speed at which we live our lives, the ways we choose to spend our time and how we think about the idea of rest itself.

UPDATE: Registration is now closed. We will allow walk-ups as long as seating is available.
You can still register for Zoom tickets after 5pm on Sunday.


Front Row Seats: $100 (limited quantity, likely to sell out!)

General Admission: $36 – $72 sliding scale
