Panel in Toronto
December 3, 2016 at 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Torah in Motion will be hosting an event featuring some young, observant LGBT Jews (including some Eshel members) who will have an honest and groundbreaking panel discussion. Dr. Elliott Malamet talks with four young and deeply-engaged LGBT individuals about how they understand and live with the challenges, tensions and opportunities of encountering Judaism.
Is it possible to affirm their authentic sexual identities and their commitment to a tradition that has historically articulated a consistent opposition to the manifestation of that identity? How do they feel about God, about Torah, the halachic system and the Jewish communities in which they are involved?
Please join this conversation about the complexities of remaining connected to Judaism and true to oneself.
The event is also going to be live streamed (details on that upcoming).
