Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation
In honor of Pride Month, JCADA hosted an event for our Friends of JCADA membership entitled, "Explore the Nuances of Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation with Friends of JCADA."
Weezie Lauher, LMSW, JCADA Grants Manager, and Rabbi Gil Steinlauf of Kol Shalom offered teachings around who the LGBTQ community is today and the unique challenges they face.
Rabbi Steinlauf showed us how the LGBTQ community is represented in Jewish text and helped demonstrate why all people regardless of sexual identity must be welcomed and valued within all communities.
