Introducing Tirtzah: A Community for Frum Queer Women

Tirtzah: The Blog

Tirtzah: The E-mail List

We are a community of frum (religious Jewish) queer women who gather to celebrate and study our yiddishkeit. We are committed to the value of shleimut (wholeness) and to supporting one another in observing a meaningful, integrated, honest and joyful Jewish life.

We started this blog and e-mail list in order to share our stories of weaving together the queer and Jewish (and secular!) parts of our lives and explorations of halacha, community, dignity, yiddishkeit, gender identity and sexual orientation.

If you are a lesbian, bisexual or queer identified woman who is religious, observant and/or Orthodox… or is on the path to becoming more halachically observant… we welcome you to join our e-mail discussion group. In addition to our e-mail discussion group and this blog, we hold events in the New York City area.

Are you a religious queer Jewish woman with a story to share? We are looking for guest posters, so if you would like to write something for this blog, please e-mail us at tirtzahcommunity at

Hooray! We have a New Banner for Pride Celebrations

after the death-thru-exhaustion of the old one, a new banner was conceived, created and delivered and is now waiting for people to come and carry it thru the streets of NYC and surrounding areas

trying out an idea put forth by rhonan in this conversation here from a few days ago (please click here to follow the fake lj-cut to see it in all its newly minted glory)

note to mods: if this isn't allowed in your Community we apologies and will rework this entry to your specification
