Sponsor Congregation Or Chadash of Chicago
Type of Event Education
Description Join Congregation Or Chadash as we host our annual Shabbaton with Rabbi David Dunn Bauer as we explore the complex relationship between the sexual and the sacred within Judaism. The Shabbaton weekend is devided into two separate events. Wine and cheese reception with Rabbi Bauer- Friday June 1st at 7pm followed by services at 8pm. Rabbi Bauer will speak on The Erotics of Jewish Prayer. Shabbat Services-Saturday, June 2nd at 10am. The theme for this service is movement meditation as part of worship; giving the Torah a voice and a body. During the afternoon, Rabbi Bauer will lead a workshop on Jewish Queer Sexual Ethics and include a text study of Jewish and non-Jewish, straight and queer sexual ethics texts, and a discussion of practical sexual ethics from a queer Jewish perspective. Both events are free and open to the public, but we ask people to register. Please note: lunch on Satuarday is optional and will be provided at a cost of $20 per person. For additional details and to register for the Shabbaton, please visit: We are thrilled to welcome Rabbi Bauer to Congregation Or Chadash.
