Marry Me However Film Screening and Panel with JOFA

February 16 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

JOFA Marry Me However Film Screening and Panel February 16 1:00 pm Sponsored by Eshel and JOFA
Join JOFA and Eshel on February 16th at 1pm EST to hear from panelists on the documentary “Marry Me However.”
The film tells the stories of LGBT men and women who, for religious reasons, decided to marry against their own sexual orientation, to comply with Torah laws and be accepted into their families and religious communities. We hear painful accounts of confusion, deception, anger, and guilt. The characters experience a journey of self-acceptance and social activism, as they try to affect a change in their religious environments. The film also follows the women who married and divorced homosexual partners, as well as rabbis and psychologists who seek a solution to an unsolvable conflict.
This is a FREE EVENT but registration is REQUIRED to receive the zoom link and film screening link.
The link to view the film will be shared with you a few days before the panel event for you to screen on your own.
The link to the Zoom Webinar will be shared 24 hours before the event.
Please contact sarah@jofa.org with questions.
