Ruben Shimonov – Out of the Fringes and Into the Tapestry: An RSJ-Mizrahi-Sephardic-LGBTQ Community Initiative

Community Building LGBTQ 2017-2018

The goal of this community project is to create a series of enriching and dynamic programs that will engage and empower an often marginalized, yet crucial, segment of the RSJ community: Sephardic and Mizrahi Russian-speaking Jews, particularly those who are LGBTQ.  The objective is to both build a supportive and vibrant community of Sephardic, Mizrahi and RSJ LGBTQ folks, while also creating opportunities for them to connect to Jewish experiences in broader Sephardic, Mizrahi and RSJ communal spaces.
