Event date: 
Saturday, April 12, 2014 - 11:30pm to Sunday, April 13, 2014 - 1:00am


Charis is excited to welcome author and activist Penny Rosenwasser for a reading and discussion around her new book, Hope Into Practice Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears. Rosenwasser will discuss how  working through internalized oppression will enable us to fight more effectively to change systems that are immoral, violent, unfair. Linking personal healing with social justice, we can speak out as loud/proud self-loving Jews against attacks on undocumented workers, against the rollback of abortion rights or against the Israeli government building settlements on Palestinian land. Jewish women in the U.S., but it’s  everyone who cares about Jewish women, about Jews, about women (including those who identify as trans/gender-queer) and about justice in general. All are welcome to attend. This is a Charis Circle Founding the Future of Feminism Event and the suggested donation is $5.

Anchored in Jewish ethical tradition, community-building, and an activist's call to repair the world and end racism, Hope into Practice asks Jewish women for the courage to love ourselves enough to face our fears without acting on them - to free ourselves of internalized anti-Semitism, expanding our sense of possibility, empowering our activism.
