KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
.
“Everybody-Friendly” is one of Lab/Shul’s defining taglines, but it is so much more: It is our path towards more welcoming, diverse, and vibrant communities everywhere. It is our vision of communities that build more bridges and fewer borders, that include rather than exclude, and that fear less and love more. Lab/Shul’s been pushing the envelope on this and many other fronts, and on June 13th, 2017, we’re going to push it farther.
.
Join us on a rooftop overlooking the Lower East Side to celebrate “Everybody-Friendly” and to be part of a moment that redefines who and what is Jewish in 21st Century America.
.
Since his rabbinic ordination in May 2016, Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie has been leading a research team exploring historical, sociological, and legal Jewish sources on intermarriage. They discovered applicable models of fluidity, inclusion, and participation in Jewish life that transcend the limitation of binaries and transform our contemporary views of what it means to belong.
.
On June 13th, Rabbi Amichai will reveal this research, present a bold proposal, and discuss its radical implications in an open conversation with distinguished speakers: Anita Diamant, Prof. Steven M. Cohen, Dr. Tobin Belzer, Sensei Robert Chodo Campbell and Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison.
