Hineni Session 2 - Privilege, Assimilation, Oppression, Trauma and Power: Exploring the Intersection of Jewish/LGBTQ Narratives
The Hyman S. and Freda Bernstein Library at the Edlavitch DCJCC

Hineni is a new four-part seminar series offered by GLOE - The Kurlander Program for GLBTQ Outreach & Engagement at the Edlavitch DCJCC (with support from Adas Israel Congregation) that will examine what it means to be both Jewish and LGBTQ today. Together with Rabbi Gil Steinlauf, we’ll dive deep into our Judaism to discover how we can become empowered, knowledgeable, and engaged members and leaders of the Jewish community with pride.

Session 2 | Privilege, Assimilation, Oppression, Trauma and Power: Exploring the Intersection of Jewish/LGBTQ Narratives

To be Jewish and LGBTQ is to live in the intersection of two traditionally oppressed populations. As Jews, we are the product of thousands of years of exile, persecution, redemptions, creativity and wisdom. Similarly as LGBTQ people, we inherit a long-despised condition of human sexuality and identity, and bear responsibility for generations who have been oppressed, violated, and murdered for being who we are. As Jews and LGBTQ people, we now enjoy privileges (to widely varying degrees) hitherto unknown to our predecessors. Through exploring the similarities, differences, and dynamics of identity of our Jewish and LGBTQ selves, we can gain great insight. With this insight, we can become effective leaders in both communities, able to creatively transform past traumas into new narratives to inspire communities.

This program is open to all people, LGBTQ and allies – Jewish and non-Jewish. No previous knowledge of Judaism or Jewish texts is required. (For accessibility/accommodation requests, please email gloe@edcjcc.org.)
