Debate for the Sake of Heaven: A Community Talk with Rabbi Kleinbaum
Perhaps no issue today is more divisive in the GLBTQ community than the debate about Israel and Palestine. We are dealing with profound issues of religious, political, and moral importance. Can Israel be a Jewish and democratic state? What are we doing about the military occupation of 2,000,000 Palestinians? Does Israel have a partner in the Palestinians who want peace? Do the Palestinians have a partner in Israel who wants peace? We want CBST to be a GLBT/Queer and Jewish community in which these ideas are debated – vigorously and with respect. And may God be with us as we do.
