How do we grapple with our intersecting and sometimes conflicting identities? Can certain identities be conflicting if one person holds them all? How do our identities and ideologies affect how we choose our Jewish communities?
Come explore these questions and more at a Shabbaton for women ages 21-35, generously sponsored by Moishe House and JOFA, the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance. "Finding the 'I' in Identity" will be an immersive experience of introspection and community-building for those who identify or have identified with the Orthodox community. The Shabbaton will focus on how those of us who were raised or now identify as Orthodox have grappled with sometimes conflicting ideologies and how we juggle those identities in order to find our place in the Jewish community. Together, we will share our experiences, questions, struggles, and inspiration on a journey to better understand ourselves and others. It is our hope that you will leave this retreat feeling empowered, rejuvenated, and inspired to embrace the multitude of your identities and to create the type of Jewish community you want for yourself.
