Jewish Libertarians PorcFest Schedule

After much planning and lack of planning, as well as events being hosted by other people, I am able to finalize and publish the schedule for Jewish Libertarian events at PorcFest XII 2015. Jewish Libertarians will be located at Agora Valley #37 – ‘ohel Herut. Times and locations are subject to change, but updates will be available at AV37.

Monday, June 22
Krav Maga • 6:00pm – 6:50pm
Creating Communities Tent

Learn the practical martial art developed by a Jewish man after the Holocaust and later refined by the IDF. This is the real deal and has real uses. Chris Kelley is not Jewish, but has practiced Krav Maga for years and is an instructor in Kentucky. A second session will be on Friday.

Tuesday, June 23
Zionism of the Free State Project • 12:00pm
‘ohel Herut – Agora Valley 37

Zionism and the Free State Project have a lot in common. Both seek to bring likeminded people together in one place to create a strong community, but also stir controversy among the natives and neighbors.

Wednesday, June 24
Antisemitism in the Liberty Movement • 12:00pm
‘ohel Herut – Agora Valley 37

Why does a movement that has had so many prominent Jewish thinkers also attract so many antisemites?

Thursday, June 25
History of the Arab-Israel Conflict • 12:00pm
‘ohel Herut – Agora Valley 37

A conflict that has claimed less than 100,000 lives in the past century occupies so much discourse and spills over into politics. There are two (or perhaps more) competing narratives with staunch defenders that make it difficult to sort out the truth.

Friday, June 26
Religions of Liberty • 3:00pm – 3:45pm
Location TBD

I join Varrin Swearingen of Liberty Ecclesia and Will Coley of Muslims 4 Liberty on a panel to discuss how Judaism, Christianity, and Islam profess values of Liberty.

Friday, June 26
Krav Maga • 6:00pm – 6:50pm
Creating Communities Tent

Learn the practical martial art developed by a Jewish man after the Holocaust and later refined by the IDF. This is the real deal and has real uses. Chris Kelley is not Jewish, but has practiced Krav Maga for years and is an instructor in Kentucky. Another session will be on Monday.

Shabbat • 8:00pm
‘ohel Herut – Agora Valley 37

It is said that more than Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept Jews. Join together with fellow Jews as we welcome the weekly day of rest. A meal is planned if I can put it all together. Sunset is at 8:35pm.

Saturday, June 27
Shabbat • All day
‘ohel Herut – Agora Valley 37

Come read, learn, and discuss Torah (parasha Huqat – Numbers 19:1–22:1) and rest from the long week at PorcFest.

Havdalah • 9:30pm
‘ohel Herut – Agora Valley 37

Shabbat comes to an end as we mark the transition back into the workweek. Candlelighting and the smelling of spices are traditional to mark the transition.


And of course, I will be present at the tent to answer any questions about Judaism and liberty, and to foster discussion. I am planning to have some pamphlets to hand out and stuff to sell, but with my move, a lot of that fell to the wayside.
