Living a Torah lifestyle as an intersex/trans/bisexual/lesbian/gay Jew

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Orthodox communities, living a 'Torah lifestyle' is often contrasted with having lesbian/gay/bisexual/trans/intersex (LGBTI) experience. As a halachically observant man with extensive experience in Jewish communal outreach, Gávi will share his insights about how LGBTI Jews can live a Torah lifestyle. He will discuss guidelines and halachic approaches to make Orthodox communities safer, healthier and more welcoming environments for LGBTI Jews. All are welcome.
