The Philadelphia Eleven (Screening & Panel Discussion)

The Falls Church Episcopal

166 E Broad Street

Falls Church, Virginia 22046 Map

Event Info

Exclusion of women from ordination and other church leadership roles made headlines earlier this summer when the Southern Baptist Convention banned women from the most senior leadership roles. Women in many parts of the Christian church continue a struggle for full inclusion in the sacraments and leadership of the church, a struggle that some women started 50 years ago.

In 1974, there was a dramatic breakthrough of the so-called stained glass ceiling that gave hope to Christian women everywhere. At a church in Philadelphia, a group of eleven women were ordained to the Episcopal priesthood in violation of the constitution and canons of the Episcopal Church – which at the time stated that only men were eligible for ordination. This story is told in a compelling new documentary The Philadelphia Eleven.

The feature documentary film will screen here in Falls Church on Sunday, February 25th! The screening will start at 4 p.m. at The Falls Church Episcopal. This event if FREE and open to ALL.

This film tells a story that continues to resonate today as women seeking ordination continue to face resistance, disrespect and exclusion from roles reserved by men for men. The documentary explores the lives of these remarkable women who succeeded in transforming an age-old institution despite the threats to their personal safety and the risk of rejection by the church they loved. These women became and remain an inspiration for generations of women in the ministry, and a clarion call for the entire Christian Church.

Following the screening, we are excited to welcome back five former female clergy of The Falls Church for a panel discussion on the film, and their experience and reflections as ordained women in the church.

This screening is hosted by The Falls Church Episcopal, a welcoming community called to be an enduring beacon of faith, hope, and love to all.

Free Right-Sizing Workshop – How to Get Rid of Your Extra Stuff!

Long & Foster Arlington

4600 Cherry Hill Rd.

Arlington, Virginia 22207 Map

Event Info

Cody Chance and Dick Nathan of Long & Foster are hosting a free workshop on the topic of “down-sizing” at their office on Cherry Hill Rd. (formerly Lee Highway) in Arlington on Thursday, February 29 from 5:30PM-7:00PM.

Every great endeavor begins with a great plan. This workshop will give you the tools to design your plan. We have created a workbook with an extensive planning guide to enable you to design a personalized written plan for your move, and more than twenty pages of resources specific to Northern Virginia to help you along the way! These resources will help you to find the best people to assist you in your move, and help you get the belongings that won’t move with you into the hands of people who will value them.

The workshop format is a “guided group discussion” of the workbook, with a chance for the participants to ask their own questions.

We will be discussing three major themes:

• How to handle a lifetime’s worth of possessions without being overwhelmed
• How to make sure that your legal and financial arrangements reflect your current and future needs
• How to sell your current home and find another that is the “right size” for you

The event is free, but space is limited – if you would like to attend, please call (703) 531-3324 or email [email protected] – RSVP required.

Science Meets Judaism: Artificial Intelligence and Ethical Biases

UUCA

4444 Arlington Blvd.

Arlington, Virginia 22204 Map

Event Info

The third program in our Science Meets Judaism series brings together Kol Ami member Jeremy Epstein, Assistant Director for Technologies and Privacy at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Dr. Rebecca Epstein-Levi, Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies and Gender and Sexuality Studies at Vanderbilt University. Their focus will be on ethical issues related to AI.

Artificial Intelligence offers the enormous promise of solving previously unsolvable problems in society, but also numerous risks, particularly when it comes to identifying and selecting people. For example, facial recognition systems frequently work substantially better for men than women and better for light-skinned than dark-skinned people — crucial aspects when used for law enforcement and even for innocuous purposes. We will explore the ethical problems and potential solutions, and how Jewish thought can aid in evaluating the codes of ethics and bill of rights that have been proposed around AI systems. A light reception will follow.
