Homosexuality in Jewish Thought
In recent years, there has been an increased awareness of the presence of gays and lesbians in more traditional Jewish communities as well. Numerous organizations and support groups exist for gay Jews who are interested in maintaining a traditional Jewish lifestyle. Steven Greenberg, a gay Jewish educator who was ordained as an Orthodox rabbi, writes and lectures on the possibilities for gays and lesbians in the Orthodox community. Finally, Trembling Before G-d, a critically acclaimed documentary about gay Orthodox Jews, has made a significant impact in raising consciousness about homosexuality in the Orthodox world.
