When “Chainz” Open Up Old Wounds

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 16:03:28 +0000

Welcome to the Queer Mikveh Project, a documentary film and project asking why mikveh, a Jewish ritual of water immersion, is not more accessible to queer and trans people. The project aims to reframe who gets to do mikveh and how, document queer mikveh projects that currently exist and create more opportunities for engaging in this powerful ritual.

EVEREST Trailer v5 from Gardenia Productions on Vimeo.

Another film about dialogue and peacebuilding between a few Israelis and Palestinians, with a few helpful Americans involved? At first blush, ho-hum.

Mourning the 8th of Tevet, the Day the Torah was Translated into Greek

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 04:15:20 +0000

These two texts challenge us to pay close attention to the power dynamics involved in a hegemonic body adopting cultural products of a subordinate group. Sometimes erasure comes through restricting the minority practice of its own culture, as in Antiochus's later persecution, which we marked on Chanukah. But sometimes erasure comes through cultural appropriation, depending on a subordinate group to create culture, and then taking it and turning it from culture to artifact, from lifeline to epitaph.
