Queer Space, with TF Rourke

Monthly on Mondays from 6:30-8 PM

Next lounge: Monday, November 9, 2020

Zoom room (Meeting ID: 856 2075 2031)

Queer Space is a drop-in group for anyone who identifies as LGBTQQIA+ and Jewish or Jewish-adjacent. It’s a casual safe space where we can honor and celebrate our multiple identities, where we don’t have to choose between being Jewish/adjacent and being queer. This is an unstructured space that is intended to be social and intergenerational: an opportunity to meet each other, to share experiences, to appreciate how far we’ve come and how far we have to go – especially with respect to the intersection of Judaism and queer identity. All ages welcome.

Contact TF Rourke with questions or email us if you have trouble accessing Zoom.

Beth Am Book Group in the Time of Quarantine, with Sandy Berger

Tuesdays at 6:30 PM

Zoom room (Meeting ID: 370 549 8989)

August 25: The Property (graphic novel), by Rutu Modan (facilitated by Rona Frances)

After the death of her son, Regina Segal takes her granddaughter Mica to Warsaw, hoping to reclaim a family property lost during World War II. As they get to know modern Warsaw, Regina is forced to recall difficult things about her past, and Mica begins to wonder if maybe their reasons for coming aren't a little different than her grandmother led her to believe.

 

September 22: My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew, by Abigail Pogrebin (facilitated by Toby Harris)

My Jewish Year travels through this calendar's signposts with candor, humor, and a trove of information, capturing the arc of Jewish observance through the eyes of a relatable, wandering--and wondering--Jew.
