LimmudBoston eFestival 2020 Program
This year's online program begins with an All-Festival Welcome Gathering featuring Rachel Korazim who will speak on "One Jerusalem - Multiple Images." Singer-songwriter Menachem Creditor will also help open the festival with some glorious uplifting music.
We are excited to announce that, through a grant from Limmud North America, eFest 2020 will have several sessions that celebrate the racial diversity within Judaism and explore issues of identity, justice, and acceptance here, and in Israel. We are honored to have some of the pre-eminent Black Jewish thinkers, leaders and activists join us at this pivotal time in America.
In addition we will explore the complicated relations in this country, before and following the election, with Marc Gopin, originally from Brookline, who has written Healing the Heart of Conflict, and is a world renowned conflict resolution consultant. Pre-pandemic, Marc worked several times a year in Israel and Syria and has consulted in much of the Middle East and beyond. He has turned his expertise homeward as he helps us navigate the difficulties of our divided political landscape.
Do you love cooking? Susan Barocas will also join us for a hand’s on cooking session . She was the guest chef in the White House during the Obama administration and cooked for the three Seders the President hosted. Her Sephardic recipes will make us all hungry.
