Open to couples and singles, Jewish and interfaith, this workshop led by Rabbi Shira helps you to craft your unique Jewish life. Discuss Shabbat, finding a community, keeping kosher, negotiating Jewish life with your family, and living spiritually in the modern world.
For women in their 20s and 30s
Take a tour of Republic Restoratives, DC’s newest women-owned distillery located in Ivy City. Feast on hamentaschen as Rabbi Suzy leads a discussion on the story of Purim as a metaphor for women’s empowerment in traditionally male dominated fields.
Filled with learning, music, and small-group conversation, this gathering aims to build common cause among young professionals of the Muslim community, District Church, Metropolitan AME Church, New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, and Sixth & I.
In connection with Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche’s upcoming talk, Rabbi Suzy offers a two-week class on how to be both a feminist and a proud Jew. Explore texts that depict women in problematic ways alongside concepts that empowered our matriarchs in revolutionary ways. Discuss how the modern women’s movement has radically changed—and continues to change—the American Jewish community.
