What are the attitudes towards LGBT issues within the Jewish community?

Jewish News is proud to present the first in its brand new series of short documentaries, focusing on issues at the very heart of modern Jewish life in Britain.

The first, which can be viewed below, explores the Jewish LGBT community’s ongoing struggle for broad acceptance among Anglo-Jewry.

Produced and directed by london-based filmmaker Ben Burman, the documentary features provocative perspectives from Surat Knanfounder of Rainbow Jews, HotSaltBeef founder Allan Davis and Rabbi Alan Plancey, former Rabbi of Borehamwood and Elstree Synangogue, who offers a mainstream Orthodox standpoint.
