Kabbalah & Coffee

I attended a talk by Dr. Ron Wolfson about creating an ambiance of welcome in your organization. The talk was sponsored by Rose Community Foundation.   Dr. Wolfson is the Fingerhut Professor of Education at the University of Judaism—he is also a graduate of Disney’s Quality Service Program.

Wolfson’s book, which was distributed to all participants, is entitled: The Spirituality of Welcoming.  One of the first things he talked about is, “do you serve coffee?” We are very grateful to Hebrew Educational Alliance for our new center. We may have some limitations on making changes to the structure of the building, but that does not mean we can’t work on our welcoming ambiance.  I invite you to make suggestions and/or recommendations to us.  How can we be a more welcoming community?

The spring semester starts March 24. Please see the schedule in the newsletter.  We will, as usual, be offering an Open House the weeks of March 7th and March 14th. Interested students are invited to observe a first-year class. You are, as always, welcome to come with them; and who knows, you may even be welcomed with a cup of coffee—Kabbalah style.
