Interview with Orthodox Gay Rabbi

By Naomi Goldberg

July 8, 2010 | 9:21 am

Check out this interesting interview with Steven Greenberg, an Orthodox gay rabbi who was profiled in the film Trembling Before G-d.

Thoughts?  I sometimes wonder why Rabbi Greenberg stays some place (in Orthodox Judaism), when it objects to so many things about him, especially when other movements of Judaism are much more understanding and welcoming of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and (sometimes) transgender Jews.

    This past weekend, I spent 30 hours over three days celebrating my own personal Independence holiday, taking out my dreads that were five years in the making.  It was freeing, it was necessary, and my hair is so beautiful.  I feel like it was the coda in the symphony of precious... read on

    Well, my mother does anyhow. In this, my first effort as a Jewish, gay, 30-year-old blogger, does it really come as any surprise that I begin this exodus writing about my mother?

    But, enough about my mom, we’ll get back to her soon enough, trust me. My name is Brandon and my hubby... read on

    I am blessed to have parents who are supportive of me regardless of my sexuality.  My father has made it clear that he loves me unconditionally, but in the back of his head, still wishes that I would find a nice Jewish guy to settle down with. I know that the main reason he thinks... read on

  • Be’er Sheva’s First Gay Pride Parade

    By Maital Guttman

    Tel Aviv is known as the “gay city” of Israel.  Some estimates say that 15% of Tel Avivians are LGBT, probably because most Israelis who are gay escape the smaller towns for the big city of night life, beaches, and fabulouness.  But Be’er Sheva, a smaller city in the South of Israel (the Neveg), is making its own steps towards inclusivity.  This year, the municipality, which included an ultra-Orthodox Jew, approved the first Gay Pride Parade.  Hear from Shai as he described the triumphs and challenges of the day.
