- (pronounced similarly to Cour-tesy) Provide lesbians and gay men who are from Orthodox backgrounds (or are currently Orthodox) with a totally free and open forum where the very difficult issues confronting each person would be given the opportunity for a free and open airing and examination. In this forum, there would be no censorship and thus, no fear of being removed for saying the wrong thing(s). The only requirement for membership of the list would be gayness/lesbianness and some connection to Orhto/Dasi observance (past or present or contemplating future). Even a desire to speak or listen will only be secondary to the only requirement for being a member which is: simply being.

- Trembling Before G-d
- Trembling Before G-d is an unprecedented feature
documentary that shatters assumptions about faith,
sexuality, and religious fundamentalism. Built around
intimately-told personal stories of Hasidic and Orthodox
Jews who are gay or lesbian, the film portrays a group
of people who face a profound dilemma - how to
reconcile their passionate love of Judaism and the
Divine with the drastic Biblical prohibitions that forbid
homosexuality. As the film unfolds, we meet a range of
complex individuals - some hidden, some out - from the
world's first openly gay Orthodox rabbi to closeted,
married Hasidic gays and lesbians to those abandoned
by religious families to Orthodox lesbian high-school
