  • Shabbat Unplugged

    60 Highland St
    Friday, May 4, 2018 (All day) to Saturday, May 5, 2018 (All day)

    While every Shabbat is an opportunity to “unplug,” Friday 5/4 & Saturday 5/5 is our yearly opportunity as a community to take the invitation that Shabbat offers us: to “be” rather than “do”; to turn our attention from the world of consumption to the realm of reflection; to unplug from those things– our computers or workplaces or cars– that keep us harried or stressed or tied into the busyness of our lives. It’s an opportunity to enjoy a Shabbat meal with family and friends, enjoy a Shabbat service, take a walk or an afternoon nap. Whether you join in a CDT activity or rest at home, take the opportunity to unplug this Shabbat!

    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.
