Gender and Sexuality: Judaism is edgier than you might think—Brunch & Learn

10:15 am - 11:15 am

(Starts right after Torah Study)

What does it mean when we let God into the bedroom? Religious notions of proper sexual behavior are frequently wielded as weapons in today’s society, especially as they pertain to same-sex relationships. Questions of gender identity have created newly fraught intersections of religion and politics. Judaism certainly has a lot to say about these things, but some of it might surprise you.
