This guide is the result of our discussions about how we are excluded from mainstream Jewish life. We have shared our experiences so that people can become more aware of the rich diversity found in Jewish spaces. The guide includes our recommendations for Jewish leaders to help their communities become more inclusive.
Part 1 of this guide provides a platform for topics that aren’t often discussed in mainstream Jewish spaces. This section reflects a snapshot of the lives of LGBTI+ Jews in 5780 and what we feel needs to be talked about. Part 2 of this guide includes some more practical tips on creating more welcoming spaces for LGBTI+ Jews.
