"Life-Cycle Events" are some of the most important features of Jewish life: Circumcision, Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Marriage, Mourning, Conversion etc. But they are also some of the most charged and problematic topics in the Jewish community. They involve questions of gender, religion and secularism, and the most difficult one of all: "Who is a Jew?" We will charge fearlessly into the thick of these debates, and hope to leave with more knowledge to help us define our own preferences and opinions.
This four-part series will be taught by Rabbi David Kasher, director of education at Kevah. Classes are $5 in advance, $8 at the door.
As with every Urban Adamah event, please bring a canned good or make a $2 donation to our food bank when you arrive.
