The Jewish community often asks whether we should be including LGBTQ members of the community,
or what the best ways are to do so. This course starts with the assumption that there are LGBTQ members of the Jewish community, and explores such questions as: Are there any recognizably LGBT figures in the Bible? Among the Rabbis of the Talmud? What does an authentic Jewish LGBTQ ritual look like? What can the Jewish community learn from the LGBTQ community, and vice versa?
No assumptions will be made about anyone’s identity, and the course is open to students of all genders, sexualities, and levels of knowledge.
