I visited my local temple and made hamentaschen for the first time!
I felt so welcome there, I'm considering going back.

uspol and complicated feelings 

working within the system means rooting for bernie but also realizing that on the vast political theory spectrum bernie is a centrist at most and i want a real far radical leftist but also the system is a piece of trash built on native genocide, chattel slavery subjected to africans, colonialism and violent xenophobia all for the sake of capitalism and like ew don't wanna

It is easy to imagine a city that works on its own, fantastical rationale, set into a sheer cliffside above a sea, let's say, or ambulatory, walking around on spider legs. It is much more difficult to imagine a city existing as the product of several competing yet totalizing rationales, such as, for example, Capitalism vs. Queerness vs. Orthodox Judaism. Yet we have many such cities in actuality.

What kinda blood do I smear on my lintel this year to make sure that Mike Bloomberg's mailers skip my house?

Advice on joining local Jewish community? 

So I'm looking for Jewish community in my area, but I'm a secular queer and I haven't been to a synagogue in a very long time. Are there any dogwhistles I should be aware of (eg. Shady Talmud quotes)?
Do you have any general tips?
And should I join the reform synagogue or the Unitarian church?

Apropos of nothing I would like to remind folks that you can filter things in your timeline on your end. You can do hard filters where you won't see the content but you can also do soft filters where you will see that something was filtered and you can check which filter and who posted before expanding it.

There are areas of things you may not be able to handle but it is not reasonable to ask others to CW, you still have tools to take care of yourself, if that is your intent with the request.
