Coming Out

As gay, lesbian, transgender, asexual, bisexual, and gender-nonconforming Jews have gained more acceptance within the Jewish community, we have sought a Jewish way to “come out”either publicly to our congregations, or privately to our families. Here you will find coming-out ceremonies, prayers, rituals, and personal stories.
