Kulanu—A Program & Resource Guide for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Inclusion
by Richard F Address, Joel L. Kushner, and Geoffrey Mitelman

In the years since the original Kulanu was published, there has been great progress in the way the Jewish community in general and the synagogue community in particular have welcomed gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Jews. It is to the credit of the Reform Movement, its congregations, clergy, and leaders that this not always quiet revolution has emerged. The revised and expanded edition of Kulanu reflects much of the change that has taken place.

With over 500 pages of material, it includes personal reflections, insightful essays, blessings and texts, Reform resolutions and responsa, three classroom lessons, an extensive bibliography and glossary, and much more, this edition will help pave the way for LGBT inclusion in your congregation or community for years to come.
