The CLGS Jewish Roundtable Presents “Post-Gay”: How Queer Values Benefit All People with Rabbi Joshua Lesser
Thursday, September 30, 1:00 PM, Online

Ten years ago, a prominent Jewish Gay historian wrote an article in a major Jewish newspaper about the “dim” future of LGBT synagogues. As a sign of their “demise,” Congregation Bet Haverim in Atlanta was called a “Post-Gay Synagogue.” When the congregation’s rabbi, Joshua Lesser, read the article, he felt the sting of this critique. Upon greater reflection, he wrote a groundbreaking and still cutting-edge essay redefining “post-gay” as a positive force in the LGBTQ and Jewish communities. This High Holy Day season, Rabbi Joshua Lesser will reflect on whether “post-gay” is a form of assimilationism or a way to demonstrate how queer values benefit everyone. Join the discussion.
