December's JQY Meeting!!! 12/12/13

Hey Everyone,

It's that time again!

What: December's JQY Meeting

When: Thursday, December 12th, 8:30pm-10:30pm

Where: The Jewish Community Center in Manhattan, 334 Amsterdam Ave. and 76thSt.New York, NY 10023.
This month's topic: LGBT Politics and Religion

Who says politics and religion don't go well together? Well, a lot of people do. Even in the Constitution, it's written that church and state should remain separate. Still, they continue to intersect on a daily basis. For instance, some people oppose legalizing gay marriage because they see it as going against the Bible (and oaths of office often include the words "under G-d"). On a more local level, several pieces of legislation relating to LGBT rights--such as the Equality and Non-Discrimination Act, the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act, and a bill about banning reparative therapy--are likely to be debated in Albany next year. Come get ready for New York's political transition in 2014 and let your opinions be heard!

Suggested donation: $3, and of course, we will be serving refreshments before, after, and during the meeting... :)

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for meeting topics, or if you would like to lead a discussion for a certain topic or month, feel free to Email me:

Hope to see you all there! This is a great opportunity for all the new members to come down and meet everyone in person!
