Purim Events for Adults

Torah Study with Rabbi Nikki DeBlosi: “It’s a Drag: Purim, Gender Costumes, & Being Our True Selves”
Saturday, February 20 at 9:15am

Join Rabbi DeBlosi for a serious look at the concept: drag and gender. On the topsy-turvy holiday of Purim, we don costumes, sometimes playing with gender stereotypes. As conversations around gender multiply, we consider the ways in which living “beyond the binary” of “male” and “female” can liberate ourselves, and one another. Click here for the source sheet for this class.
