Breaking Down Walls
30 April – 2 May 2021 Online
Save the Date for Liberal Judaism’s Biennial Conference 2021. The theme of this year’s conference is “Breaking Down Walls”.
LJ’s Biennial Conference 2021 is co-chaired by Rabbi Leah Jordan, Rabbi at Kehillah North London, and LJ National Officer Owen Power.
Conference Co-Chair Rabbi Leah Jordan says “We will showcase how our movement creates space for the most diverse and interesting sort of Jewish community – one built on the values of progressivism and inclusion that have been at the heart of Liberal Judaism since its founding almost 120 years ago. In true Jewish fashion, we will also hold ourselves to account to do better, to continue to push that horizon and build sustainable change within our Jewish spaces for the 21st century.”
We will be joined by our Friday Night Keynote Speaker Rabbi Benay Lappe, an award-winning educator specialising in the application of queer theory to Talmud study. Learn more about Rabbi Benay here.
This year we are committed to putting on a Biennial Weekend that uplifts the true diversity of Jewish voices and to put on a truly content-rich and thought-provoking weekend. Biennial 2021 aims to celebrate, as our Co-Chair Owen puts it, “inclusion in action”. If you want a weekend of stimulating discussion, fun activities and a focus on how to create a sustainable and truly multi-faceted Jewish community then please join us.
