After the Flood, the Rainbow: A Healing Service for GLBT Jews

at JCC in Manhattan
Amsterdam and W 76th St
New York, NY

Join faculty members of Nehirim & Keshet for an informal evening of ritual, healing, and talking about gays and lesbians and the organized Jewish community, its members & denominations. Many in the LGBTQ community have felt wounded by their ‘movements of origin’ as they came out and searched for an accepting Jewish community. Recently, many Jews have felt a sense of disconnect or even despair in the wake of the recent debates about homosexuality. Informed by current events, this evening will not be a debate about the issues. Rather, participants will experience 90 minutes of stories, song, and ritual to begin the healing process for LGBTQ Jews, and their families, friends and allies. Co-sponsored by the JCC in Manhattan.
