Global Day of Jewish Learning
In partnership with UC Lichter Lecture Series
November 11, 2pm
Cincinnati’s 2018 Global Day of Jewish Learning will feature Rabbi Susan Goldberg of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Los Angeles. As the Rabbi Script Consultant for the acclaimed TV series Transparent, she will speak on “In the Wilderness: The Spiritual Journey of Transparent.” Rabbi Goldberg will use stories and performances from the groundbreaking, award-winning TV Show, Transparent, to spark thinking and conversation about how issues of gender and sexuality can expand our understanding of Jewishness and one’s identity generally. Following Rabbi Goldberg’s talk, participants can choose from a variety of workshops on extraordinary passages with local experts including University of Cincinnati Judaic Studies, physicians from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, HUC-JIR, and Cincinnati rabbis. Global Day of Jewish Learning is an annual event where Jewish communities across the globe study a shared theme from a variety of perspectives rooted in Jewish texts. This year’s theme is: Extraordinary Passages – Texts and Travels.
