Join us as HaMaqom queer educator, Meg Adler, leads us in a three-part discussion about how three huge binaries of Jewish life impact our experiences as Jews in the United States. Over these conversations, we will be considering three binaries: religious vs. not religious, “believe in G-d” vs. “don’t believe in G-d” and Jewish vs. non-Jewish. Each session will involve some study but mostly, a lot of reflection and community learning. That means you aren’t coming to a class as much as an exploration – bring your own ideas and be ready to share!
