cool thing about Rabbinic Judaism: in a great many cases, the people viewed as the greatest of their generation were not kings or priests or even prophets, implying that it was possible and common for ordinary people to become the greatest of their generation
bad thing: it never questions kingship or the priesthood themselves, nor ask "what about the people who weren't considered great in their generation, what about the people who no one listened to, what about Jewish women and queers etc."

so, i might've been wrong about them specifically welcoming queer people, but they do say here: https://yiddishfarm.org/history/our-values
"Due to our general adherence to Jewish observance, which we view as a pillar of our people’s radical tradition, our Yiddish immersion programs stand out in so far as students are exposed, first hand, to a lifestyle that informs their language acquisition."
masto.jews.international is a pluralistic, pro-Diaspora Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together.
