The Louis Bunis Memorial Lecture at Reconstructionist Rabbinical College

Progressive Jews are beyond “it’s okay to be gay” and have begun asking more interesting questions about the intersections of Judaism with queer sexualities and genders. Are there distinctively queer voices and perspectives which are beginning to enrich the Jewish conversation, much as women’s voices have done over the last generation? What are some of the ways to “queer” Jewish theological categories such as God, Torah, and Israel?
