An exploration of the transformation of attitudes toward LGBTIQ people within Melbourne's Jewish community from the 1990s to current day. This session includes the screening of a 10 minute documentary "Aleph Melbourne - Celebrating 20 Years - 1995-2015". It also includes an exploration of how the 2009 shooting at the Tel Aviv LGBT Youth Centre was the catalyst for a series of events that shattered the decade-long silence since the Victorian Jewish community leadership rejected the membership application of a gay men's group to them endorsing marriage equality 8 years later.
Learning objectives/outcomes:A greater understanding and appreciation of the issues, sensitivities and nuances around LGBTIQ inclusion in Melbourne's Jewish community.
