Torah Queeries: Reading the weekly Parashat from an LGBTQ Perspective taught by Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell

What do our sacred texts say to us today? How do our beloved and complex and often problematic texts help us to shape our lives, make ethical decisions, and honor the sacredness of every human being?  Join us on the dates listed below from 7:00-8:30pm as we dive into the weekly portion and explore these and many other questions. No Hebrew or text study background necessary. Torah Queeries sessions will be recorded and archived on the pRiSm webpage for those who are unable to attend.
