Join Ruach HaYam for a queer Saturday morning Shabbat service and potluck lunch. Celebrate the coming of Spring and study parashat Shimini. For the potluck bring cold veggie/dairy food. If brought in a package, food must be hechshered. Please register and let us know what you will be bringing. If you would like to read from the Torah let us know also. Hit the registration button to sign up on facebook and leave a comment, or email the event organizer, Penina Weinberg, firstname.lastname@example.org
We will have a text study over lunch, or at the end, brought to us by Dev Singer over at Nice Jewish Queer Folk, http://www.meetup.com/Nice-Jewish-Queer-Folk/ called THE CREATION OF GENDER.
Genesis 1:27 reads “God created the adam in God’s image; in the image of God [God] created him — male and female [God] created them.” What does this verse mean? How were the genders brought into existence according to the Tanakh? This text study will explore how rabbis explain this through the generations.
We welcome queer Jews, friends, allies, family, and interfaith connections to our events. We worship without a mechitza, and with acoustic music only. We have our own siddur. Our service is warm, meaningful, collaborative, leads to deepening of friendships, and is simply fabulous.
While we are not a large enough group to offer childcare, children are welcome to come along. There are side rooms with toddler toys. Our venue is accessible via ramp, bathrooms are all-gender but not accessible.
