Judaism & Gender – Dive deeper into the intersections of Judaism and gender! Gender has always been a central theme of Jewish text, ritual and culture.  As our values around gender have evolved, how 
do we engage with a tradition that is thousands of years old? We’ll learn with incredible leaders in the field, enjoy delicious meals together, and explore how our understandings of gender today impact our own Jewish identity and the way we engage Jewishly.  Sign up here or email Rabbi Leah for more information!
