Hineni Houston

What is Hineni Houston?

Tell Me More

It is a community-wide initiative that will engage up to 1000 Houstonians in conversations to imagine and co-create Jewish life in Houston that is joyful, meaningful and relevant for ALL of us, no matter where or how we live our Jewish lives. Our goal is to understand the “heart of the matter” in terms of what activates Houston’s Jewish potential now and into the future. LEARN MORE

JOIN US FOR A LISTENING FORUM (more being scheduled)

Participants in the room set the conversation agenda around a particular theme – in our case “What are your aspirations for Houston’s Jewish Community, now and in the future?” Anyone can name and convene a small group conversation on a topic related to this core question. Registration required. Please click the “register” button under the session you are interested in attending and complete a short registration form.

The community is invited to any session that is convenient.
