Washington D.C.: Here I Am
Rabbi Gil Steinlauf was the first rabbi I interviewed after the Pittsburgh tragedy. He talked about his worries and hopes going forward. He also talked about his Torah study session with then President Barrack Obama, his strongly-worded letter to President Donald Trump, coming out as gay to his congregation and his plans to help more LGBTQ Jews own their identity in the Jewish community.
