From Miami Herald columnist Bea Hines:
At 6:30 p.m. on Saturday (Feb. 25), Temple Israel of Greater Miami's Ru’ach LGBT havurah will join with Nehirim, a national LGBT Jewish organization to host writer, scholar and activist Jay Michaelson, author of the recently published book, God vs. Gay?: The Religious Case for Equaity. The book addresses the intersections of religion, sexuality, spirituality and law. The program begins with a short service and will be followed by dinner and an hour-long "Jewish speed-learning" session at 7:30 p.m. At 9 p.m. the group will join Next@19th’s CHAIKU program that highlights Michaelson’s and participants’ LGBT Jewish poetry. The cost of the evening is $25 (on a sliding scale; no one will be turned away for lack of funds). Make your reservations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Temple Israel is located at 137 NE 19th St., Miami.
