50 Years of Queer Jewish Liturgy: A Look Back
Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History
Join Dr. Gregg Drinkwater and Rabbi Jane Rachel Litman as they look back at 50 years of LGBTQ Jewish liturgy. Drinkwater and Litman will reflect on key moments in the development of liturgy for LGBTQ-centered Jewish spiritual communities, examining prayers, poems, blessings, sermons, and rituals. Topics will include the often subtle queer subtexts found in Jewish liturgical material from LGBTQ synagogues in the 1970s; the spiritual practices sparked in those congregations by the trauma and urgency of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s; the interplay between the liturgical innovations of Jewish feminists and LGBTQ Jews; the turn toward more explicitly queer references in liturgy from the 1990s and 2000s; and Jewish liturgy centering transgender and nonbinary people developed in the last two decades.
