SPARK 2020: LGBTQ Inclusion in Jewish Life – Cancelled
2 Lake Street, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
LGBTQ Inclusion in Jewish Life: Where do we fit and how can we all belong together?
Randi Reed, Keshet’s Bay Area Educator
The makeup of our Jewish world is changing; we now understand and describe gender, identity and individuality differently than we ever have before. This three-part session with Keshet's Bay Area educator will explore LGBTQ+ language, identity and inclusion, not only in our secular world but our Jewish community as well. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community and how to be an ally; discover the rich history of Bay Area LGBTQ activism and how it intersects with our SF Jewish history. Finally, participants will deep-dive into Talmud and Torah texts on gender and find a new lens in which to read these ancient writings.
