The Eternal One spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai: "Speak to the Israelite people and say to them: When you enter the land that I assign to you, the land shall observe a sabbath of the Eternal." - Leviticus 25:1-2
If you follow My laws and faithfully observe My commandments, I will grant your rains in their season, so that the earth shall yield its produce and the trees of the field their fruit. - Leviticus 26:3-4
Microaggression & Upstander Workshop
This workshop will be interactive and focus on common microaggressions that community members from a wide range of marginalized backgrounds experience. During this workshop, we will learn how to identify a microaggression, common microaggressions in the Jewish community, and strategies to disrupt microaggressions caused by others, as well as those (inevitably) caused by ourselves. This workshop is open to all.
On the first day of the second month, in the second year following the exodus from the land of Egypt, the Eternal One spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the Tent of Meeting, saying: "Take a census of the whole Israelite company…" - Numbers 1:1-2
This workshop will apply a historical, modern, and intersectional lens to LGBTQ+ Pride, as well as share ways to incorporate critical components of racial equity, diversity, and inclusion within our congregations and communities. We will learn about some of the ways people from various marginalized backgrounds (including members of the LGBTQ+ community) experience marginalization in our communities, and how to create more affirming and inclusive communities. We will also learn some shared inclusive language as well as tools that will help us disrupt oppressive behaviors and create a community of belonging that we all strive for.
