CCAR Convention
Southern California
Rabbis Leading the Shift:
Jewish Possibility
in a Rapidly Changing World
Sunday–Wednesday, March 3–6, 2013
Southern California
We are thrilled that Michael Chabon
will speak at Convention. Chabon is the
Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of
Kavalier and Clay, The Yiddish Policeman’s Union, and many other
works that force us to think about the nature of the stories
we tell. Chabon will focus on the importance of shaping
Jewish narrative as a means of connecting our past
with our present, all with the goal of developing
a vision of the future.

The 2013 Convention will provide you with an opportunity to reconnect with
friends, pray, and engage with some of the finest scholars, teachers, and
learning opportunities in sunny Southern California.
Come to connect. Come to learn. Come join the conversations and work
powerfully, together.
• Explore texts with world-renowned scholars
• Learn to use intentional conversations in our communities
• Build non-hierarchical settings in our workplaces
• Lead social justice, interfaith, and sustainability efforts
• Utilize technology and social media to create new connections
• Deepen our spirituality
• Engage with colleagues of multiple generations and varied work experiences

Convention will feature intentional
conversations. In an age when people feel

disconnected from one another, we will have
intentional conversations with each other to find
meaning from our learning, discover collective
wisdom, share ideas, and work together toward
our future.
