Sephardic, Mizrahi, and LGBTQ+: Lifting Our Stories Out of the Margins
Hosted By: My Jewish Learning
Join My Jewish Learning for a lively discussion with Ruben Shimonov about an often-overlooked segment of the Jewish world: LGBTQ+ Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews. Shimonov is an educator, community builder, and social entrepreneur passionate about Jewish diversity. In this talk, he will explore the ways in which LGBTQ+ experiences have been historically represented in Sephardic and Mizrahi cultures and the challenges that queer Jews from Sephardic and Mizrahi backgrounds face.
