ELI Talk


In her ELI Talk, Rabbi Lappe maps out the long history of traditionally radical “queer” innovation within Judaism, teaches a heart-wrenching passage of Talmud that shows how the Rabbis used svara to create a smarter, more compassionate Torah, and implores all of us to hang onto our queerness and outsiderness in order to become “players” in the next Jewish future.
