My House Shall Be A House For All People: Welcoming the LGBT community into our Houses of Worship | Tampa

at Congregation Kol Ami
3919 Moran Road
Tampa, FL

Synagogues have become more welcoming than ever of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Jews, with all movements except Orthodoxy authorizing same-sex weddings and ordaining LGBT rabbis. Some feel that we still have a ways to go, while others are unsure of the impact of inclusion on Jewish community and tradition. A panel of local Rabbis and national LGBT activists, including award-winning author and Tampa native Dr. Jay Michaelson (recently included on the Huffington Post’s list of the top LGBT religious leaders in America), will discuss these issues and more in a first-for-our-community event.
