The weekend of April 19-21 is a big one for Jewish conferences!
NUJLS (the National Union of Jewish Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Intersex Students) is holding its 2013 conference at Rutgers Hillel in New Jersey. Registration closes on April 12th, and you can register at http://www.nujls.org/.
Jewish Voice for Peace is also holding its National Members' Meeting the same weekend, in Berkeley, California! You can register at http://jewishvoiceforpeace.org/campaigns/2013-jvp-national-member-meeting, and student scholarships are available for travel and registration. If you're concerned you won't get enough queerness at the JVP conference, though, don't worry -- you can join me at the "Resisting Pinkwashing and War Culture: Critical queer and feminist politics in action" workshop on Sunday!
Ethical Kashrut: Uri L'Tzedek
What if keeping kosher were not just a matter of ritual purity, but of justice in the workplace as well? Rabbi Smuly Yanklowitz, the founder and president of the Orthodox social justice organization Uri L'Tzedek, will speak about the Tav HaYosher initiative, which certifies kosher resturants on the basis of their labor standards.
Tuesday, 4/9: in Rabb Hall
Co-sponsored by Progressive Jewish
and the Orthodox Student Minyan Alliance
