Theological Perspectives: Homosexuality in Contemporary Orthodox Thought

Rabbi Shmuel Hain and Rabbi Nathaniel Helfgot
December 15, 2020

This edition of INSIDE THE CONVERSATION examines the question of Orthodoxy and Homosexuality from a theological perspective. While much discussion has been devoted to policy questions about inclusion in the Orthodox community, less attention has been paid to the deeper theological questions raised by the remarkable shifts in American society on gay marriage and related issues.

Rabbi Nati Helfgot surveys the range of theological perspectives on this issue in an important research paper and in a podcast with Rabbi Shmuel Hain.
