Benj Pasek and Rabbi Sandra Lawson

Join us for an online pre-Shabbat series celebrating the Queer Jewish experience with some of our favorite leaders, writers, actors, and artists.

Fierce Thursdays (formerly known in-person as Fierce Fridays) are back and happening online — more accessible than ever!

We’re kicking off on March 11 with a spiritual and musical pre-game of Shabbat with a moderated conversation and Q+A. This time we welcome Oscar, Grammy, Tony, Olivier, and Golden Globe Award-winning songwriter/producer Benj Pasek of Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land, and The Greatest Showman fame and our spiritual leader of the evening Rabbi Sandra Lawson who is the first Director of Racial Diversity, Equity and Inclusion of Reconstructing Judaism and known for her accessible and joyous TikToks. Check them out here!

Registration is free of charge.

Past guests (in-person) include RuPaul’s Drag Race star Alexis Michelle, Phillip Picardi, Kate Bornstein, Abby Chava Stein, Garrard Conley, Masha Gessen, and more.
