Broward International Women's Club and Congregation Etz Chaim is bringing together South Florida locals to learn and celebrate Shabbat in an environment for Gay and Lesbian Jews, inclusive of Bi-sexual, Transgender and Heterosexuals. Continue the conversation after the service with light refreshments and make a new connection or two.
UU Miami is bringing together Miami residents for discussion and connection around the common beliefs, values and hopes for our community that we hold, despite our different religious or cultural backgrounds. This will be an opportunity for us to acknowledge our differences but also our shared values, framed around our 7 UU Principles. We will enjoy coffee, tea and light bites on a Friday evening to close out the 10 Days of Connection making connections with people we never really thought to connect with.
The Copper Door B&B and Ana Sofía Peláez, author of the James Beard-nominated The Cuban Table, come together for a Cuban inspired lunch and conversation about the cultural differences that keep us apart and the city that needs us to come together. This connection experience is necessary in South Florida because it incorporates how important cultural diversity is and how they make up who we are in our communities.
In a state as diverse as Florida it is important that our workplaces reflect this diversity. Being open to diversity often just requires a personal connection and that's what we hope to leave you with after this lunch and learn.
This event is open to all members of the community who are interested in learning about how to become a better ally in the workplace for the LGBT community. The event includes complimentary lunch and will focus particularly on how to be an ally to the trans community. We encourage you to come and join us for this interactive experience and learn a little more about our community.
In the spirit of connectedness, the City of Fort Lauderdale, the Broward County Library, and Museum of Discovery and Science and other local partners are bringing South Florida locals together to highlight the vital importance of early literacy programs by showcasing how each partner encourages reading for our Pre-K to third grade children. This is a Progressive Lunch & Walk.
MCCJ invites you to ask a stranger to lunch today to advance our community in understanding and respect of others through conversation. MCCJ challenges all of us to embrace Miami’s diversity and build an inclusive community by asking a person who you see everyday but do not know their story to grab a bite to eat. This can be a co-worker, a neighbor, a person who works at a business that you frequent, or even someone you ride the elevator with everyday but have never spoken to. Engage with the community and help build bridges so we can all love loudly.
