Dear Friends,

At Hebrew College with my online course “Queer Jewish Journeys in Media”!

The course is offered in English, is run online (so you may join in from anywhere around the world!), and there are financial scholarships available.

Click here for full info.

With gratitude,

Stav Meishar

From “Angels in America” to “Transparent“, from “Bent” to “Yentl“, we will explore the intersection of Jewish identities and queer identities in film, television and theater. Are these identities separate or influence each other? Do they stand in juxtaposition or do they complement each other? What does it mean for these characters to be Jewish and Queer, and how does it shape their trajectories? We will watch excerpts from these works (may contain spoilers) and analyze these questions together using biblical, contemporary and academic texts.

Dates: Oct 15, 29; Nov 12, 19; Dec 3, 2023 (5 sessions)
