Keep Not Silent. 17 February 2018. 2:30 pm.

Israel: The current Chief Rabbi in Jerusalem has described homosexuality as “an abomination”, declaring that “[t]he Torah says it is punishable by death”.

Keep Not Silent / את שאהבה נפשי (Dir. Ilil Alexander, 2005)

Hebrew with English Subtitles

=Clandestine meetings, community, defiance.=

While LGBT equality and protection are now enshrined in Israeli law, the leaders of Orthodox Judaism are adamant that the only answer to homosexuality is self-repression. Many Orthodox Jewish women who love other women have tried to follow the rules, but some have begun to organise secretly and fight for recognition

--A fascinating documentary on repression and expression.
