Ritual Reconstructed

Join us for an event dedicated to examining Jewish life through an LGBTQI lens. Ritual Reconstructed is a collaborative, community and academic project working with film, performance, installation and storytelling to look at the ways in which Jewish people who identify as LGBTQI, engage in religious and community life.  This event is a culmination of that project.
