From the (Internalized) Closets to the (Intersectional) Streets: Pride Shabbat Edition

at Congregation Dorshei Emet

Montreal, QC
More Info / Registration

Perhaps the essence of ethical monotheism is the link between spiritual practice and the pursuit of justice.  Yet the link is so often broken.  As Jews, LGBTQ+ people, and many other groups have experienced, sometimes the wounds of being a minority, instead of opening us to the pain of others, cause us to contract into fear.  How can we do better, doing the work of empathy, awakening, and impactful activism?  Drawing on the wisdom of Torah, meditation, queer theory, and depth psychology, Rabbi Dr. Jay Michaelson will offer practical and philosophical reflections on these urgent and timely questions.

The talk will be broadcast on Dorshei Emet’s Facebook page, .
