Redefining Rebbetzin, by Richard A. Walter-Jernigan

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

My husband and I posed for our NOH8 photo at NC Pride in Durham, NC on September 24, 2011. As a rabbi and rebbetzin for the LGBTQIA community and others who feel displaced and run off by many Jewish congregations, we wanted to have a way to let our LGBTQIA youth and adults know that there is at least one rabbbi and rebbetzin they can turn to that will understand and will support them in their spiritual journey. We wanted to let them know that in our scattered congregation there is ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM 4 H8!
