Eser: Expand Your 10
Conversation | Connection | Community
Eser is Hebrew for 10, a number with special significance in Judaism. Ten is a symbol of good luck and power: there are 10 commandments, 10 members of a minyan, and 10 sefirot, or elements of the divine existing in nature.
Eser encourages you to expand your 10 through discussions and debate with your peers; by exploring contemporary issues and ideas through a Jewish lens; and by building connection and community through conversation.
Eser, a Hebrew College program supported by CJP, brings together individuals in their 20s and 30s throughout the Greater Boston Area,
no matter where you are on your Jewish journey. We welcome individuals from all
religious, political, gender, and economic backgrounds. Past participants include
secular and religious Jews from a variety of movements, and non-Jews, including partners
in interfaith relationships and those considering going through conversion.
