The Yeshiva University Tolerance Club invites you to: Being Gay in the Orthodox World: A Conversation with YU Community Members. Over the past year in YU, there has been an increasing amount of dialog and disturbance with regards to the issue of homosexuality within the Modern Orthodox community. The last issue of the Commentator alone contained almost four pages worth of content in response to a letter written by an anonymous gay YU undergraduate student. In response to these escalating events, Wurzweiler School of Social Work and the YU Tolerance Club are organizing a panel event, featuring gay undergraduate and recently graduated YU students and moderated by Mashgiach Ruchani Rabbi Yosef Blau. Sponsored by Wurzweiler School of Social Work, YSU and SCWSC.
