From Sociology to Anthropology

In the “post-school” era, most girls do not have the opportunity to challenge themselves with extra learning. Nor do they have the time to focus on their creativity. Lasting inspiration is hard to come by. At NightLife we get a healthy dose of it all.

Rabbi Parisi, a convert to Judaism, was a pastor for many years. His story was unknown for some time, and we were fortunate to hear it first hand. Through retelling his story, he brought to light many things we take for granted. He expounded on the questions and confusion he came across on his quest for the truth. Parisi told us how his congregants began keeping Shabbos, fasted on Yom Kippur and eventually closed down the church. His astounding journey to Yidishkeit is an inspiration for us all to continue our personal growth.

NightLife programs also offer outlets to express other talents. Craft events of frame decorating and jewelry making reopened modes of creativity lost since preschool. Girls left with professional work far surpassing that of Anthropologie
