Marry Me However by Rabbi Mordechai Vardi


a Zoom Panel on “Marry Me However”: Hoping for the Wrong Future

Sunday, March 21st at 4pmET.

Eshel is partnering with Rabbi Mordechai Vardi and Go2Films to carry this powerful documentary into the North American Jewish community. The film has begun to spur awareness among Orthodox religious leaders that the absence of an approved life arc for young gay Jews damages them and many others as well.

Join Miryam Kabakov, Executive Director of Eshel who will moderate a discussion with filmmaker, Rabbi Mordechai Vardi, author/educator Rabbi Steven Greenberg, clinical social worker, Motti Salzberg and Shoni Braun, a mother of four children, formally married to gay husband.

We are very excited to be partnering with Eshel, a national support, education and advocacy organization for Orthodox LGBTQ Jews and their families. Eshel is working with the filmmaker, Rabbi Mordechai Vardi and with Go2Films to bring this groundbreaking documentary to North American audiences and has put together a stellar panel for today’s discussion.
