The Queer Shabbaton DC is a weekend-long "urban retreat" of community, culture, and spirituality for LGBT Jews, partners, & allies. Fun, stimulating and inspiring, the Queer Shabbaton returns to DC for a second time in the fall of 2012, co-presented with GLOE: The Kurlander Program for GLBT Outreach & Engagement at the Washington DCJCC, and Congregation Bet Mishpachah.
Queer Shabbaton weekends generally attract 100-150 LGBT Jews (plus straight allies and non-Jewish partners) from across the religious-ideological spectrum, ranging in age from 18-70 (usually, most are in their 20s-40s), and with a wide variety of gender and sexual orientation identities. Transgender nice Jewish boys, avowed atheists, couples and singles, men, women, and the rest of us -- there are people like you at Nehirim!
At this year's QSDC, we will also have special programming for students as well -- we'd love to again have a large turnout of students at the Shabbaton, and Jonathan Lipton, the recent chair of NUJLS, is co-directing.
When: 5pm on Friday, October 26 through 1pm on Sunday, October 28, 2012.
Where: DCJCC,16th and Q Streets, Washington, DC
How much: Sliding scale from $95-195. Financial aid available.
