    60 Highland Street: sanctuary, kitchen, living room, room 111, room 212
    Saturday, May 19, 2018 - 7:30pm to 11:55pm

    Shavuot is the holiday when we celebrate the mythical moment of receiving Torah at Mt Sinai, and the ongoing unfolding of Torah—Jewish learning—in all its many forms. We will celebrate Shavuot with a night learning (and schmoozing and eating) ending at midnight!

    Keynote address by Joyce Antler -  “READY TO TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN”:  WOMEN’S LIBERATION AND JEWISH IDENTITY

    Reconstructing the lost Jewishness of radical feminism, Professor Antler explains why the honor-roll of women’s liberation pioneers includes so many Jewish women.  As they have shaped other American social movements, Jewish women have profoundly shaped modern feminism, both secular and religious.

    Joyce Antler is the Samuel J. Lane Professor Emerita of American Jewish History and Culture and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University. She is the author of many books, including You Never Call! You Never Write! A History of the Jewish Mother (2007), and The Journey Home: How Jewish Women Shaped Modern America (1998). Her latest book, Jewish Radical Feminism: Voices from the Women’s Liberation Movement will be published this spring by New York University Press.
