Holy Sparks: Celebration the Feminine in Spirituality and Faith

November 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

After viewing the exhibit, “Holy Sparks: Celebrating 50 Years of Women Rabbinate,” guests are invited to explore the feminine influences on religious traditions and faith journeys by hearing from a panel of diverse religious leaders as well as a poet, sculptor, and musician.

Too often, people are not as aware of the deep and profound feminine influence of their faith formation and faith journeys because of the patriarchal nature of religion in general. This emphasizes the feminine through music, art, sculpture, spoken word, and food.

Using the “Holy Sparks” art exhibit as a backdrop, this event encourages attendees to contemplate and identify the feminine influence on their faith formation and faith journey. Stories from sacred texts will be shared along with stories from individuals that identify, recognize, honor, and celebrate the stories of women, how they have shaped faith practices, communities, and individual faith journeys.

Panel speakers include moderator Katherine Tyler Scott (Managing Principal Ki ThoughtBridge), Rabbi Sandy Sasso (Rabbi Emeritus, Congregation Beth-El Zedeck), Dr. Anita Joshi (Hindu Temple of Central Indiana Board), and Reverend Dr. Marilyn Gill (Executive Director of Indiana Christian Leadership Conference). Featured artists include Deepha R. Maturi (poet), D. Del Reverda-Jennings (sculptor), and Dena El Saffar (musician).

A partnership between Center for Interfaith Cooperation, Congregation Beth-El Zedeck, and JCC-Indianapolis.
