How do we grapple with our intersecting and sometimes conflicting identities? Can certain identities be conflicting if one person holds them all? How do our identities and ideologies affect how we choose our Jewish communities? What does Jewish tradition have to say? This will be an exploration of contemporary issues through the lens of ancient Jewish texts to produce a diverse, nuanced, and productive conversation - one that so many are craving to have in person and off social media. The goal is to engage with one another to promote productive dialogue on important issues and to educate ourselves on identity politics. We will explore questions relating to communal expectations, litmus tests, privilege, intersectionality, and more.
