Congregation Bonai Shalom is excited to share a weekend of learning and inclusion with the Boulder community.

He is a Senior Teaching Fellow at The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership (CLAL) and the founder of the Jerusalem Open House, the Holy City’s LGBT community center.  His 2004 book “Wrestling with God & Men: Homosexuality in the Jewish Tradition” has won numerous awards, and he was featured in the 2001 film “Trembling Before God.”

On Friday night, April 5th, Rabbi Greenberg will share his personal story at Congregation Bonai Shalom after Friday Kabbalat Shabbat services with the lecture “Birthday Suit Dreams: The Unlikely Invention of an Impossible Identity”.  Rabbi Greenberg will share some of his own journey and in the process explore the master stories in the book of Genesis which have authored, directly and obliquely, our sexual assumptions.
