Save the Date: Being Gay In The Orthodox World (December 22, 2009)

SAVE THE DATE: December 22nd in Furst 501 at the Wilf Campus (185th and Amsterdam) at 8:00 PM.

The Yeshiva University Tolerance Club alongside Wurzweiler School of Social Work has decided to arrange a panel event featuring homosexual Yeshiva University undergraduates and recent graduates.

Possible Topics of Discussion:
** The process of coming out to friends and family
** The struggles between religious and gay identity
** The progress within the community at recognizing gay people
** Issues of isolation and mental health
** Ways in which friends can be more helpful in this struggle

This event is open to the public. Come. Whether you are off the derech, Haredi, Modern Orthodox, Conservative or Reform, the very fact that this event is happening is important. Come with your questions and let's hope that this dialogue enables people to understand what it means to be homosexual while having been born into or chosen to remain in the Orthodox Jewish world.

I wish I could share this post with my friend and brother, Dr. Dan Kliman, an Orthodox Jew and gay rights advocate (Dan 's body was found last December in an elevator shaft in the building where he studied Arabic) Dan was an incredibly articulate spokesperson for tolerance among all.

He was interviewed at the San Francisco Pride parade a few years back about reconciling his beliefs:
