Purim, Relationships, and Choice: How have things changed?
Sunday, March 13, 2016, 4-5:30 PM
You may know the Purim story as one of the quintessential stories of the Jewish people. But looking deeper, the Purim story is a dynamic account of a variety of complex, and sometimes problematic, relationships that can teach us about roles, identity, and relationship dynamics.
Join the DCJCC and JCADA for an in-depth conversation about the relationships that frame one of our favorite holidays. Learn about the issue of domestic abuse in the Jewish community, how to recognize the signs of an abusive relationship, and why this is a social justice issue that affects our community.
