Ritual Reconstructed Revisited – the Chanukah edition

14 December 2020 – 28 Kislev 5781

Liberal Judaism is delighted to invite you to take part in an online interdisciplinary symposium which builds and expands upon the successful project Ritual Reconstructed: challenges to disconnection, division and exclusion in the Jewish LGBTQI+ community.

Ritual Reconstructed ran between 2014-16 (pictured) with intermittent ‘pop-up’ events in the years since. Now, for 2020, comes Ritual Reconstructed Revisited: continuity and signalling the future.

It will be lead by Liberal Judaism’s Shaan Knan along with Professor Margaret Greenfields (Buckinghamshire New University), Dr Searle Kochberg (University of Portsmouth) and Dr EJ Milne (Coventry University).

Half-day panels and events will take place over the next three days – Tuesday 15, Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 – including the following:

Keynote: LGBTQI+ Jews: impacting religious practice and social justice
LGBTQI+ (Physical and Metaphorical) Jewish Space
LGBTQI+ Interfaith Panel
LGBTQI+ Jewish Representation in the Arts
Mental Health and Well-Being: The LBGTQI+ Jewish experience
LGBTQI+ Jewish Intersectional Identities
LGBTQI+ Religious Identities in a Pandemic
The representation of LGBTQI+ Jewish Women and Non Binary People in Ritual Practice
Looking to the Future New LGBTQI+ Jewish Rituals
