Chris Bartlett, the Executive Director at the William Way LGBT Community Center in Philadelphia, isn’t Jewish. But…he’s attended Queer Talmud camp, hosts Shabbat gatherings at his organization’s building, attends many Jewish holiday gatherings, and has Jewish friends of all ages! He joins Dan and Lex for a conversation about notions of “Jewish-adjacent” and “Ger Toshav” — two terms in different languages that refer to folks who are not Jewish, but/and are absolutely part of the Jewish community. This episode is the fifth in an ongoing Judaism Unbound mini-series, exploring conversion to Judaism.
