LGBTQ in Israel: When Tel Aviv Meets the Rabbinate

Matan Zamir Deputy Consul General in SF grew up in Jerusalem where his family has lived for nine generations. He is a lawyer; he received his L.L.B. from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 2008 and like any passionate Israeli, Matan enjoys his basketball, and upon moving to San Francisco he became a proud Golden State fan. Zamir and his American partner Dylan Chuilli, are excited to be in San Francisco and the couple, who are avid wine connoisseurs, enjoy exploring California's wine country. As an interfaith couple — Chuilli is a non-practicing Christian — Zamir told the Bay Area Reporter during an interview earlier this month that he looks forward to working with the San Francisco Bay Area's large interfaith community.

Great Questions Interreligious Discussion Group
Sunday, October 11th // 12:30pm

This is an ongoing group that meets once per month. We discuss the Great Questions of Existence though the lens of many of the world's religions.

At this meeting, we will take a "deep dive" into various elements of religious observance, both for Judaism and an array of other religions, primarily utilizing recent Pew Research poll data. This will help set the framework for future presentations, visits and studies and give participants a picture of differences and similarities among many major, and not-so major, modern religions.

We will also view a related video that approaches "religion" as a multi-dimensional activity.

For the more information, and/or to receive the Zoom link for this meeting, please send an email to Len Schreibstein at: Lendebsch@aol.com
