Be part of the CJM’s latest installation at this DJ launch party for Reboot’s Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life: Live from The CJM with SMITH Magazine. Listen to Six-Word Memoirs with Piper Kerman (Orange is the New Black), CJM Executive Director Lori Starr, and community leaders Lana and Stephanie Volftsun. Afterwards, add your own story of Jewish life during the Six-Word Slam. Watch as your story appears on a live stock ticker displaying Twitter contributions in real time. Fabulous cocktails at the cash bar and sweet treats by Craftsman & Wolves pop-up available for purchase.
Inspired by Ernest Hemingway's legendary shortest of short stories, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn," SMITH Magazine founder Larry Smith challenged readers to describe their lives in six words. Seven books and more than 800,000 Six-Word Memoirs shared on SixWordMemoirs.com later, this short form has become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination, or simply break the ice. The Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life in San Francisco project aims to engage the Bay Area in the conversation with an innovative platform at The CJM.
The installation and the San Francisco project are supported by the Young Funders Impact Grants Initiative of the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund and the Koret Foundation. The event is presented in partnership with the SF Jewish Community Federation's Young Adult Division (YAD).
