BRIGHT NIGHTS
Tuesday August 6 - 7 PM
The moon is a symbol of diminution, a symbol of constancy for the Jewish people, and a symbol that might have resonance for the LGBTQ+ community and additional people who have been “othered.” In the days preceding Tisha B’Av, explore the queer, imaginative tradition of Kiddush Levanah—the sanctification of the moon—and some related texts that amplify the season’s themes of comfort and protection. (co-sponsored with Temple Israel and J-Pride)

Originally from New York City, Rabbi Jason Klein has served as the Director of Lifelong Learning at Temple Israel Minneapolis since summer 2018. He is a 2002 graduate of RRC and recent past president of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association.

About Us

Mayim Rabim Congregation, founded in 1992, is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement. We are an urban Jewish community that comprises people of diverse ages, abilities, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and financial resources. We strive to create and sustain spaces that enhance the practice of Judaism in the contemporary world; to that end, we are a house of prayer, of study, and tikkun olam (the repair of the world). As Reconstructionists, we view Judaism as an evolving religious civilization and claim a shared heritage with all Jews.

We are an inclusive, heymish congregation and we welcome visitors!
