Details: The upcoming holidays are a time of reflection and repentance in the Jewish world. For LGBT Jews in the Orthodox world, the subject of Teshuva is sensitive, special and uniquely important. Join the LGBT Jewish community for a discussion about the holidays, prayer, forgiveness, and how we can make these holidays most effective for ourselves, our families, and our communities. 

Over the last 3 years JQY has been working with Aish NY to make Aish Hatorah an LGBT friendly Jewish resource and have accomplished some groundbreaking work together. This year we are pleased to have Rabbi Stuart Shiff, Director of Executive Learning at the Aish Center in NYC, facilitate this discussion and share his thoughts about Teshuva as an Orthodox Jewish Leader and recent outspoken ally of the LGBT Jewish community.
