Song of Songs Seder: Celebrating Queer Sexuality
ALL are invited to kick off Pride season with the National Queer Arts Festival’s JeWitchy event celebrating queer sexuality. Open all your senses as you leisurely wander through the gardens of Urban Adamah. Renowned musician, Jewlia Eisenberg will serenade our hearts and ears. The rockin’ beats of Debbie Fier on percussion will entice your body to move. Rabbi Eli Cohen and Akiva Bankole will lead us in queering the ancient biblical poem: Song of Songs, while sharing poetry, stories and exploring our seder plate. Celebrated Jewish dance masters, Bruce Bierman and Gilberto Melendez will lead the whole crowd in ecstatic Middle Eastern dance. The ritual will culminate in everyone casting a JeWitchy magic spell. Ritual foods and drinks will be provided.
Supporting LGBT Refugee Services through The East Bay Jewish Family and Community Services is the tikkun olam (repairing the world) project for this event. For more information, click here.
