Holy Sparks: Celebrating Fifty Years of Women in the Rabbinate

Holy Sparks is an art exhibit that celebrates 50 years of women in the rabbinate. It includes art from 24 women who were “firsts” during their time. “Holy Sparks” was organized by the Heller Museum at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, in partnership with The Braid, in celebration of 50 years of women in the rabbinate.

The exhibit is open to the public from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday at the Indiana Interchurch Center throughout the month of November.

We’d like to thank our partners at Beth-El Zedeck for helping us bring this amazing tribute to women to Indianapolis.

Holy Sparks is on loan from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, New York.

New View Film Series

The Butler University Center for Faith and Vocation and Center for Interfaith Cooperation continue to co-sponsor this unique webinar series to promote understanding and foster respect for differences through the lenses of interfaith understanding, diversity, civil discourse, and social justice. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with the audience.

Each of us has a unique view through which we see the world. Shaped by our experiences, culture, and familial identity, this view forms our beliefs, values, and way of life. A New View Film Series — a partnership between Center for Interfaith Cooperation and Butler University’s Center for Faith and Vocation — journeys outside everyday life to explore new worldviews through films. Each screening is followed by a discussion of the film.
