Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth, Ephraim Mirvis, wants to end homophobia. He calls on all schools to protect LGBTQ students.
Harvey Milk. Judith Butler. Leonard Bernstein. Hell, even Peaches. There are, literally, scores of Jewish LGBT people across the globe. Famous or no, these LGBT Jews represent a significant portion of both the Jewish and LGBT populations. But our numbers aren't the only thing that make us amazing. Many, like the few listed above, are singers, conductors, politicians, philosophers, and actors. It always amazes me when I see just how many LGBT Jews there are, and what we can do.
