Three Weddings and a Statement

Two people fall in love, decide to spend their lives together, find an officiant, stand under a Chuppah to take their vows — and then celebrate their joy. Except in Israel, it’s not that simple. You are cordially invited to a very special Triple Wedding; a celebration not only of love and commitment but of the equality of all Jews. In Temple Emanu-El’s historic sanctuary, prominent rabbis representing Judaism’s different movements will join in matrimony three Israeli couples who are deprived of the right to marry at home because they are either gay, not considered Jews according to Israel’s chief rabbinate, or because they reject the rabbinate’s rigid control over Jewish marriages and divorces. Join us to support them and the cause of religious freedom and equal rights in Israel.

More Than Medicine: Social Justice and Feminist Movements for Health

In a conversation about her book, More Than Medicine, historian Jennifer Nelson will focus on how feminists of the ‘70s through the ‘90s applied lessons of the New Left and Civil Rights movements to generate a women’s health movement. The new movement shifted from the struggle to revolutionize health care to the focus of ending sex discrimination and gender stereotypes perpetuated in mainstream medical contexts. With renewed attacks on access to health care, contraception, and abortion, Dr. Nelson will suggest ways histories of feminist and social justice activism might provide lessons for current struggles for reproductive freedom. Following her lecture, Nelson will be joined in conversation by Sarah Seidman, Puffin Foundation Curator of Social Activism at the Museum of the City of New York. “Who Controls Women’s Health?: A Century of Struggle” is a free, three-part talk series presented by The New York Academy of Medicine and the Museum of the City of New York that examines key battles over women’s ability to control their bodies, health choices, and fertility.

You Are Here – NYC: Art, Information, and Mapping

Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents You Are Here – NYC: Art, Information, and Mapping, an exhibition of New York City maps by a selection of contemporary artists, designers, and data analysts, showcasing a melding of information, visualization, and artistic endeavor.
