Take a deep breath!
Hillel at NYU and the NYU Bronfman Center are hosting Rest for 2000, a week of events centered around rest beginning Tuesday, April 20. After a year of separation, stress, and loss it is more important than ever to bring our community together for a collective moment or in this case moments to breathe and connect.
Inspired by Shabbat for 2000, we have reimagined what 2000 can represent. Maybe it means 2000 meaningful conversations, 2000 breaths, 2000 paint strokes, or 2000 braids of challah. Rest for 2000 exemplifies a pillar of Bronfman Center education and leadership development through woven leadership—the idea that each of us needs one another in order to make the largest impact on our community. A little rethinking and innovation can keep us connected to one another and our traditions.
