Gender and Judaism

Sunday, May 5, 2019 30 Nisan 5779

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In the dizzying spin of the 21st century, we have achieved marriage equality in all 50 states for LGBTQ people, there are openly gay and lesbian leaders in every field, and transgender rabbis, athletes, actors, government leaders, and everyday Americans are more able to live their lives as their truest selves. We will examine Jewish texts that deal with gender, sexuality, and inclusion as a way to situate the conversation within a Jewish context. You may be surprised to learn how much Judaism has to say about these very contemporary issues, and how advanced Jewish teachings have been on these sometimes-controversial topics.

All are welcome to study with Rabbi Yael Ridberg, the spiritual leader of Congregation Dor Hadash, San Diego. A graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, Rabbi Ridberg serves on the boards of Jewish Family Services of San Diego and the San Diego Jewish Academy. She has written for Huffington Post, Times of Israel, as well as a weekly column, Torah Talk: Weekly Wisdom from the Parasha. Cost of the program is $10. Sponsored by the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture and the JCC. Click here to register.
