Intersectionality: Wrestling with Zionism
and Social Justice Activism
Shabbat June 5th, 5:00 pm

Join us for our first - and especially timely -- Nosh N' Drosh of the summer. We will come together for a multi-generational conversation exploring the issues and challenges many young Jews are now facing, sometimes feeling that they need to choose between supporting Israel and engaging in the conversation about social and racial justice. We will talk about this as a community, and explore exactly what is happening and why it is happening. With panelists Rabbi Aaron Lerner, Mina Rush, and Jeremy Borison. Members Only.
