Here is our favorite Kickstarter Project of the year, so far:
A feature documentary about the liberal American/Israeli Rabbi David Lazar’s journey in the Jewish community of Stockholm.
The New Rabbi documents the story of American/Israeli Rabbi David Lazar. The Jewish-orthodox bible student who became a liberal rabbi and a fighter for feminism, the heterosexual father of five daughters who became a gay-activist and came to marry the first lesbian couple in Israel, in a prison.
Yes: an Israel rabbi that was the first to marry Lesbian couples in Israel. And in Jail, no less.
We just found out about this — and it has already hit the funding goal and closed. If we had known earlier, we would have supported it.
We can’t wait to see Irene Lopez’ documentary! We already want to buy a copy!
