Has the Tent Become Too Wide?

By Jayson Littman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2012

As the Jewish community attempts to make itself more inclusive of the LGBT population, it has been forced to grapple with how to accommodate a variety of other individuals with different identities. The "gay community" is also becoming more inclusive, welcoming those who identify as queer, transsexual, or gender non-confirming. However, the effort to create inclusive spaces for the more marginalized comes, sometimes, at the expense of others.
