Join us as Noam Sienna reads selected stories from his groundbreaking collection of queer Jewish texts. There will be a Q-and-A after the reading, followed by a book signing.

About the book: Spanning two millennia, five continents, and containing translations from fifteen languages, A Rainbow Thread is a new, definitive anthology for queer Jewish history. Through an unprecedented collection of texts, it bears witness to the many ways in which queer and Jewish identities intersect, resurrecting a legacy that many have assumed cannot or does not exist.

About the author: Noam Sien­na is a Jew­ish edu­ca­tor, artist, and doc­tor­al stu­dent at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Min­neso­ta. His aca­d­e­m­ic work has explored art, mag­ic, and gen­der and sex­u­al­i­ty, par­tic­u­lar­ly among Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ties of the Islam­ic world. He has taught about Jew­ish cul­ture and his­to­ry at aca­d­e­m­ic and com­mu­ni­ty venues around the world.

This event is made possible by a partnership with the Jewish Alliance’s CRC (Community Relations Council).
