Tuesday, Dec. 13th Living in the Tension

For the next Living in the Tension community gathering on Tuesday, December 13th, we will be watching Trembling before G-d. The documentary features intimately told personal stories of Hasidic and Orthodox Jews who are gay and lesbian and gives a window into their lives as they they seek to navigate their religious tradition. Regardless of where you are coming from with regards to faith, it is a great documentary worth checking out. It brings to light stories that are rarely heard, showcases the resiliency of the human spirit in relation to remaining a part of a faith community where one’s sexuality does not make it an easy road and it does a great job at humanizing an ‘issue’ while respecting the faith tradition of those in the film. We will be meeting on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. in Room 120 at 7pm.

You can check out the trailer for the film here.

We hope to see you there!

Much love.
