    Abortion and Reproductive Rights in Jewish Tradition
    Wednesday, Nov 30th 7:30p to 9:00p
    With the recent Supreme Court case overturning Roe v. Wade, there is much discussion about religious values and how they inform decisions surrounding reproductive rights and abortion. Judaism differs importantly from many streams of Christianity on these points, and it is even more important now to understand how. We’ll examine Jewish texts and traditions on the topics of abortion and body autonomy.

    Sing a New Song - A Survey of New Melodies for Ancient Texts
    Wednesday, Dec 14th 7:30p to 9:00p
    We all have the melodies to certain prayers and texts that speak to us - perhaps something from childhood or something we’ve learned somewhere along our Jewish journeys. Jewish musicians and composers are always finding new ways to bring meaning to ancient texts, and we’ll hear how some of them have interpreted them through song. We’ll hear examples from Israeli artists, queer Jews, and camp song leaders, and do some singing along as well.
