Mentsh: On Being Jewish and Queer

Tossed between sometimes contradictory cultural imperatives, queer Jews often find themselves in a soul-searching struggle to integrate their religious beliefs with their gayness. Over 30 contributors from around the world (including Israel, Serbia, and Australia) reveal their surprising, poignant, sometimes hilarious experiences in ways that offer a staggering perspective on issues of identity, institutions and culture from the viewpoint of the queer outsider struggling to belong. Contributors include: Leslie Feinberg, Bruce Shenitz, Leslea Newman, Bonnie J. Morris, Elana Dykewomon, Aaron Hamburger, and Simon Sheppard.Angela Brown is also the editor of Set in Stone and Best Lesbian Love Stories, 2003 and 2004. She lives in West Hollywood, Calif.
