TE Talk Series Features Two Jewish Agencies Jan. 18
Sandy Springs, GA – North Atlanta’s Temple Emanu-El kicks off its 2018 “TE TALKS” series with leaders of two unique, important, yet little known organizations.
Metro Atlanta Community Mikvah (MACom) is the only Atlanta ritual bath that welcomes Conservative and Reform Jews seeking spiritual enrichment. The second agency, the Southern Jewish Resource Network for Gender and Sexual Diversity (SOJOURN) embraces people who are gender-and sexually diverse.
Speakers Alice Wertheim, MACoM’s first president, and Rebecca Stapel-Wax, SOJOURN’s executive director will provide background on their two organizations, followed by Q&A. Interested adults and mature teens are encouraged to attend.
The 90-minute program takes place 7 p.m., January 18th, at Temple Emanu-El, 1580 Spalding Drive, Sandy Springs. It is free, and open to congregants and members of the Reform and Conservative Jewish community.
More information about MaCom or SOJOURN is available online at:
About Temple Emanu-El
Temple Emanu-El was founded in 1978 by a daring group of Jewish families living on the north side of Atlanta. Its vision is, and always has been, to give our congregants a deeper, more meaningful life in a warm, caring neighborhood synagogue. We are focused on transforming ourselves and our world through the five main pillars of Jewish life: Sacred Community, Worship and Spirituality, Lifelong Learning, Israel and Peoplehood, and Social Justice.
