Increasingly, the landscape for LGBT Jews in the UK is a positive one. Coming out as gay does not mean you have to leave the Jewish community. Building on the JCCs sell-out Queer as Folk Tales, this evening will discuss how we can be inclusive.
What lessons can we learn from the progress of the USAs gay Jewish movement? What unique challenges face us in the UK? In the light of recent controversies, how can we build a strong and welcoming community for everyone?
Dr Andrea Jacobs runs LGBT education and participation projects across the US. She oversees the national Jewish Safe Schools & Supportive Communities Project, using the film Hineini: Coming Out in A Jewish High-School as a tool for opening discussions. Keshet UK works for greater equality for every LGBT Jew in the UK. Wherever you place yourself, come along and be part of the conversation at this informal and welcoming event.
The event will continue with a friendly social at a central London bar.
