Lunch & Learn: What is G-d's Gender?

Saturday, 10 June, 2023 21 Sivan 5783

12:00 PM - 1:30 PMKehilat Nitzan

We all know that the metaphors that we use to talk about G-d in Jewish tradition are largely male, yet this is not the whole of the story. In this session, we will study text from Torah, midrash and kabbalistic sources, and draw on feminist, queer and trans interpretations to find that the question of G-d's gender is not so certain as we might think, offering us new possibilities for understanding not only the divine but ourselves. Presented by Dr Emily McAvan, a writer and lecturer on religion and culture, as well as an Honorary Fellow in Writing and Literature at Deakin University. Date: June 10, immediately following the Shabbat service. Vegetarian cholent will be served!
