Our friend D’ror over at the Columbia / Barnard Hillel decided it was time people in Hillel knew what being LGBTQ and Jewish was really about (we don’t all want to sit around reading leviticus over and over and over again… and we’re not “just like straight people… you know, but gay”!)
Anyhow, so D’ror decided it was time to put together a resource guide. And so he did. It’s officially Hillel and will be distributed in just a few days. So, Mazal Tov to D’ror and thanks for all of your hard work!
Here’s an article in The Advocate about it!
“There exists a common belief that religious groups are not open to the LGBTQ community,” D’ror Chankin-Gould, editor of the resource guide and Jewish Campus Service Corps senior fellow at Columbia University and Barnard College, said in a press release. “This guide is helping Hillel break down barriers and cultivate an inclusive, welcoming home for all Jewish students.”
