Turning, Becoming, Affirming: A Queer Entry into the Jewish New Year

The Jewish month of Elul is a time of reflection leading up to the High Holy Days. Join us for a bit of introspection as we seek to tap into our authentic selves and learn from the experiences of others.
Monday, August 28th from 6:30-8pm at Congregation Har HaShem and online.
Our guest will be Jhos Singer, a professional Jewish educator, community and congregational leader, writer and speaker. As an out trans man, Jhos is deeply committed to recognizing the holy in each human he encounters. Jhos seamlessly engages his students in conversation about Jewish spirit, text, story, tradition and being. Jhos will be joining us virtually.

Jhos Singer is a dynamic preacher, storyteller, pastoral counselor, and musician. He has a unique ability to translate Torah and Jewish tradition in ways that are accessible, relevant, and compelling. He is a rogue scholar: on the one hand, he holds a BA in Music from UCLA and an MA in Jewish Studies from the Graduate Theological Union—and on the other, he also finds as much wisdom in pop culture, mixology, home gardening, or taking in a fine afternoon with friends and family. His love for all things Torah, his congregants, and their trust in him fuel his desire to serve.
