CANCELED: Tzedek Chicago: “Queering Jonah: Jonah as a Coming Out Narrative”

March 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Tzedek Chicago is hosting a class at the PO Box, “Queering Jonah: Jonah as a Coming Out Narrative.”

Through sharing in a close read of the Book of Jonah, participants will gain an understanding of the figure of Jonah coming out as a prophet and coming to terms with his life’s purpose. What can looking at Jonah with queer perspectives teach us about coming out, self-acceptance, and the importance of engaging from the margins?

No previous experience with Jewish texts or queer theory required.Taught by Assistant Clergy Jay Stanton.
