Joel Oseran at SAUPJ Indaba

by Maskil on June 9, 2008

In a previous post on the blog Altneuland, I mentioned the address given by Rabbi Joel Oseran at the European Region Conference of The World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ) in Vienna (March 13 through 16, 2008). I suggested that “it [the address] needs to become something akin to a manifesto for Liberal, Progressive and Reform Jewish communities worldwide.”

According to an article on the SAUPJ (The SA Union for Progressive Judaism) website, it appears that Rabbi Oseran will be a keynote speaker at the SAUPJ Indaba, its biennial conference, to be held in Cape Town from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 June.

The other guest speaker will be Dalya Levy, executive director of Arzenu, the Zionist movement of Progressive Judaism based in Israel.

Presumably only those on the committees of the various Reform congregations countrywide and various invited guests will be attending. Perhaps one day when I’m big, I’ll also get invited to events such as this (no irony intended)!
