Event description

Join Kehilat Kolenu in celebrating the festival of Shavuot with a night of learning and interesting discussions.

The night will include a special Q&A session with John Safran, a well known radio personality, satirist, documentary maker and author. We'll be talking to John about the role of his Jewish identity within his work and his perspectives on extremism in Australia that he discussed in his 2017 book "Depends What You Mean By Extremist". There will also be an opportunity for you to ask John questions and we're certain that plenty of laughs will be included.

We will also be facilitating discussions around central themes in Megillat Ruth, the traditional text read during Shavuot that centres around Ruth's journey to joining the Jewish people and deals with themes of identity, gender and social inequality.

As it is Shavuot, dairy (and vegan) treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
