WATCH: What do Orthodox LGBTQ Jews want from their community?

Young religious Jews on a retreat for gay and queer families were asked what the community could do for them

At the annual Eshel retreat for Orthodox LGBTQ Jews, participants were asked what they would like to see from their community.

Here is the text that accompanies it on YouTube:

“At Eshel’s national retreat, we asked members of this vibrant community of Orthodox and formerly Orthodox LGBTQ+ Jews a simple question: “What do you want?” Here’s what some of them said. This is the third in a series of videos with Shonna Levin about LGBTQ+ issues in the Orthodox community. Thanks to Shonna and Rachael Fried for all of their help putting this together, and to Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Miryam Kabakov, co-executive directors of Eshel, for giving me the incredible opportunity to attend Eshel’s retreat!”
