A Rainbow Thread – Book Launch (Toronto)

October 2, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The Toronto debut of Noam Sienna’s unprecedented collection of sources from Jewish LGBTQ history. Featuring poetry, literature, law, midrash, and memoir, this is an unprecedented examination of the histories of gender and sexuality over two millennia of Jewish life around the world. Come discover centuries of hidden history, from a gay brawl in a medieval synagogue to a gender-bending Jewish stowaway in colonial Canada. Join us for a reading of selected stories from this groundbreaking collection, and a discussion and book-signing with the author, followed by kosher refreshments.

Noam Sienna, a Jewish educator and artist, received degrees from Brandeis University and U of T, and is a doctoral candidate in Jewish History and Museum Studies at the University of Minnesota. Co-sponsored by: Annex Shul, Beth Sholom, Beth Tzedec, City Shul, Danforth Jewish Circle, First Narayever, Hillel at the University of Toronto, Holy Blossom, Shir Libeynu, Makom, and Miles Nadal JCC.
