Revelation on Homosexuality from a Jewish rabbi

Posted: 7 December 2015

Rabbi Gershon's 'Dream Shirt'

Regarding the Mormon Church's recent draconian change of policy regarding homosexuality and same-sex marriage, I recalled an exchange on this subject with a rabbi friend last year, who once had been the chief rabbi of Idaho and who knew personally many of the LDS general authorities. Here is my email:

Dear Rabbi Gershon,

A few years ago you told me a dream you'd had when you lived in Idaho, which addressed your community's concern about homosexuality.
Will you update your...URL?

Thank you,

Eugene Kovalenko

Rabbi Gershon responded with his URL here. I have always reverenced his story and considered his dream as divine revelation not only for his people, but for mine as well.
