The Jewish holy day of Shavuot – beginning May 24th this year – raises profound issues of how queer people understand Scripture.  As we empower ourselves as Torah interpreters, and center our own experiences and visions, the Torah becomes a living revelation rather than a relic of a past time and place.  Join the brilliant and thought provoking LGBTQ pioneer Rabbi Denise Eger as she presents guidance and insights in Queering Shavuot.

Rabbi Denise L. Eger (she/her) is the founding Senior Rabbi of Congregation Kol Ami in West Hollywood, California. Known for her LGBTQ Activism and AIDS activism, Rabbi Eger was the first openly queer Rabbi to become President of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the international organization of Reform Rabbis. She is the editor of the groundbreaking collection of prayers and reflections, Mishkan Ga’avah: Where Pride Dwells. A Celebration of LGBTQ Jewish Life and Ritual.  (2020).
