Wrestling with God and Men: Homosexuality in the Jewish Tradition

In 1999, Rabbi Steven Greenberg became the first Orthodox rabbi to openly declare his homosexuality. Employing key elements from his award winning book, Wrestling with God and Men: Homosexuality in the Jewish Tradition, will explore four rationales from biblical, rabbinic and medieval Jewish literature examining the prohibition of sex between men. Each rationale offers a different frame for reconsidering the law's meaning and application.
