Don’t forget tonight is the night we welcome Jay Michaelson author and activist to Kol Ami. We will engage in a conversation about his new book, “God Vs Gays: The Religious Case for Equality. The program begins at 7 pm at 1200 N. La Brea and it is free! Moderated by Dr. Joel Kushner of the Institute for Judaism and Sexual Orientation of Hebrew Union College, it is sure to be an important evening for all who care about spiritual advancement of LGBT rights.
Jay has an amazing bio for such a young man, he is a contributing writer for the Forward and editor of the hipster magazine Zeek. He is the founding director of Nehirim which produces Jewish LGBT spirituality retreats nationwide.
I know you will want to hear him. The evening is co-sponsored not only by Kol Ami and IJSO but also JQInternational, MCC/LA, The LGBT Commission of the Episcopal Diocese, Nehirim, The Forward, GLADD, California Men’s Gathering (CMG) and Beacon Publishing.
