Mishkan Ga'avah Publicity Information

"Rabbi Denise Eger, along with this volume's many contributors, has expanded our tradition and elevated the entire Jewish community with her extraordinary collection of prayers and blessings consecrating holy moments in the lives of our LGBTQ family. I welcome Mishkan Ga'avah: Where Pride Dwells into the sacred Jewish canon, confident that every lover of an inclusive Jewish life will turn to this inspiring work again and again."
-Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President, Union for Reform Judaism

"As LGBTQ Jews, we remember the painful history of exclusion and marginalization that has long cast a shadow over the pride we take in our faith. This beautifully written, painstakingly edited book is an important and joyful contribution towards a fully inclusive Judaism, one which actively celebrates our identities and recognizes that all of us are created b'tzelem Elohim, in God's image."
-Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, Senior Rabbi, Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, New York, NY

"As LGBTQ+ peoples reclaim their spiritual heritage, rejecting the lie that God does not love us, we are writing our own stories, prayers, and liturgies. These offerings are used extensively in the reframing of the religious language of inclusion. Rabbi Denise Eger offers another layer of insightful and provocative liturgies that draw on her vast experience of ministry to the LGBTQ+ community over many years, and I commend her leadership and contribution in her latest work, Mishkan Ga'avah: Where Pride Dwells."
-Rev. Dr. Neil G. Thomas, Senior Pastor, Cathedral of Hope, Dallas, TX

"From personal morning prayers to community and special occasion blessings, Mishkan Ga'avah: Where Pride Dwells does a beautiful job of incorporating queer lived experience into Jewish practice. ... Whether you want to find a way to pray that feels more authentic or just want to learn more about the intersection between queerness and Judaism, Mishkan Ga'avah is a great resource." - Nesh Magazine
