An exhibition of local Israeli artists commemorating the legacy of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
Join us for a discussion-based introductory seminar about the observance of niddah, (regular separation between partners). We will hear first-hand from individuals who observe niddah, and explore the textual roots and diverse contemporary practices of this Jewish tradition in a judgement-free, open space.
While this seminar will not attempt to cover all of the halachot (Jewish laws) associated with niddah, it will offer time for text study, individual and group reflection, Q and A, and a general overview of the practice. Resources to continue learning will be provided.
GLBTQ people and those in interfaith relationships are warmly invited to attend. Married and unmarried couples, as well as single individuals, are all welcome at this seminar. This is a continuation of the Beyond the Huppah program, and is open to the public.
