We will have a text study over lunch – brought to us by Dev Singer over at Nice Jewish Queer Folk, http://www.meetup.com/Nice-Jewish-Queer-Folk/
THE CREATION OF GENDER.
Genesis 1:27 reads “God created the adam in God’s image; in the image of God [God] created him — male and female [God] created them.” What does this verse mean? How were the genders brought into existence according to the Tanakh? This text study will explore how rabbis explain this through the generations.
