More Info / Registration

Join Ruach and Nehirim for a fascinating, fabulous, and fun evening of Jewish learning, spirituality… and food. We’ll begin at 6:30 with a short Havdalah service, marking the end of the Shabbat and ringing in a new week. Then we’ll enjoy a festive “Melaveh Malkah” Saturday evening dinner with delicious catered food.

From 7:30 to 8:30, we’ll do an hour of interactive ‘speed-learning” on Jewish queer texts, done in paired “chevruta” style. Finally, if you haven’t had enough, some of us will join Next@19th’s “CHAIku” program at 9pm, featuring Jay’s ecstatic and energetic queer Jewish poetry and music. Bring your own 17-syllable celebrations of queer Jewish experience to share.

All this plus a diverse community of LGBT Jews, families, friends, and allies (straight allies and non-Jewish partners welcome too!).

Cost is $25 (which covers the costs of the dinner) or $18 no-questions-asked discounted rate. No one turned away for lack of funds. RSVP by February 10. CHAIku is free.
