OKC's Zug program will involve a six week sprint, providing an opportunity for a shared-learning experience where we hope you will learn something substantive and meaningful, and have an opportunity to connect with community other community members. You are welcome to participate in as much or as little of the program as you wish. For a flavor of the experience, we recommend attending at least our two in-person sessions (on January 24 and February 14 @ 8:20 PM at OKC), but for the full experience we recommend also participating in a few very-manageable short take-home sessions with a partner.

All of this will culminate in a night of singing, sharing, and a bit of feasting on March 2 after the end of Shabbat, also at OKC. At this event, anyone can share a thought based on the learning, a song, and offer a l'chayim. We hope you have a meaningful and fun experience!
