Closing Plenary & Havdalah
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
The final plenary of the URJ Biennial will kick off with the dynamic and stirring music of both Elana Arian and Walt Whitman’s Soul Children of Chicago. Historian and author Deborah Lipstadt – winner of the Albert D. Charnin Award from the Jewish Council for Public Affairs – will take the plenary stage to impart her wisdom and insight.
We’ll bid farewell to Shabbat together as Elana Arian, Deb WInter, and Dan Nichols lead us in Havdalah. And then, get ready to laugh: Renowned comedians from The Second City join us for a private, personalized show that’s sure to entertain and delight.
As the Biennial concludes, Dan Nichols will lead us in a song session to reflect on the exceptional, encouraging, and enlivening week we’ve all shared together – and, of course, to look ahead to the URJ Biennial 2021.
