Orthodoxy and LGBTQ Inclusion

“If we’re worried about Torah being lost, why aren’t we worried about people being lost?” Rabbi Mike Moskowitz says in this article from The Jewish Chronicle. 

“Being gay itself is not a to’evah. Forcing people into a life of deception is.”

We’re #KVELLING as we read this article that includes Rabbi Moskowitz, CBST’s Scholar-in-Residence for Trans and Queer Jewish Studies, among other forward-thinking, LGBTQ-inclusive Orthodox rabbis.
