Dear Lab/Shul,

It’s been a wild week in social media with tensions in the Jewish world, Queer community, Zionist circles and rippling beyond. I invited three of Lab/Shul’s rabbinic and queer voices to join me in sharing personal perspectives, rants, and questions about what it means to be nuanced like rainbows in a world increasingly demanding life in black or white – read the powerful reflections of Rabbi Kerry, Sarah Strnad, Marijke Silberman and myself, then please share with friends.

More to say on this? Join me and the Lab/Shul Team for a free lunchtime phone call tomorrow at 12:00pm EST to continue the conversation and enter the long weekend of liberty with commitment to respectful dialogue.

Got 30 seconds? We’re labbing our daytime Shabbat programs for next year – new time, new format, and we need your feedback! Please help co-create a radical new year with this 3 QUESTION SURVEY…it’s really just 30 seconds, and priceless community feedback.

You’re a producer? We’re hiring! Currently searching for the most amazing Event Producer for High Holy Days 2017/5778, so share the JOB DESCRIPTION with your networks, and send resumes ASAP to!

May we all be inspired by this weekend to rise up and act up for an America (and world) of justice, truth, and freedom. Rainbows for all.
