Join Rabbi Gil Steinlauf and Dr. Tamara Cofman Wittes of The Brookings Institution to explore Jewish insights on sexual harassment/assault, and discuss ways of taking collective action to stop sexual abuse and protect potential victims in our community.
Since the allegations against Harvey Weinstein have come to light, there has been a flood of further allegations against sexual perpetrators in all quarters of our society. It is time we acknowledge this problem openly as a community, and seek strength, insight and answers together. Join Rabbi Gil Steinlauf and Dr. Tamara Cofman Wittes of The Brookings Institution for one of the first conversations convened by a Jewish communal institution on the current sexual harassment/assault issues proving to be cultural flashpoints around the world together, we'll explore Jewish insights on this problem, acknowledge the challenges, and discuss ways of taking collective action to stop sexual abuse and protect potential victims in our community.
This will be a special event presented by GLOE - The Kurlander Program for GLBTQ Outreach & Engagement at the Edlavitch DCJCC as part of its ongoing Torah & Sexuality series of Jewish learning programs relating ancient texts to modern sex, exploring different topics in Judaism that relate to sexual relations, expression, and identity, presented in a contemporary context by various rabbis and other Jewish educators.
This program is also fully inclusive of all, regardless of gender expression, sexual identity, or ability. For accommodation requests, please email Stacey Herman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
