Upcoming University Women Events

A Special Morning with Danielle Berrin, Senior Reporter & Columnist for the Jewish Journal
Re-start, Re-claim, Re-vive: The Great Spiritual Power of a Prefix
Friday, September 11, 2015
10:00am-Non
AJU's Familian Campus, 15600 Mulholland Drive, Bel Air

It is a stubborn, regretful fact that life gets dreary sometimes. Routines become boring. Familiarity seems mundane. Repetition becomes numbing. The letters "r-e" begin some of the most powerful, aspirational words in the English language: Rebirth! Renew! Redefine! The prefix is a call to activate - to respond to our deepest yearnings. It literally means "once more," "afresh," or "anew," the perfect kavanah for the high holy days which call us to "return" (teshuva) to who we are meant to be in this world.

But what is required for the spiritual transformation this prefix promises? How do you rethink something painful? How do you reinvent your career, reclaim your purpose, or rekindle love? The speaker will share secrets from her own spiritual journey.

Danielle Berrin is a senior reporter and columnist for the Los Angeles Jewish Journal where she writes the award-winning Hollywood Jew blog, a cutting edge, values-based take on the entertainment industry. The Los Angeles Times described her as 'a natural born provocateur' for her commentaries on the business, culture and characters of Hollywood. Danielle received the 2015 Southern California Journalism Award for top columnist from the L.A. Press Club and has twice been awarded "Best Blog" in Los Angeles. In 2013, Danielle was selected as an American Jewish World Service Global Justice Fellow.
