Gay jew dating
I am the kind of nice Jewish girl who gives my mother nightmares.I'm not on the run from the law, I didn't skip Hebrew school to get my belly button pierced, and no, as a teenager, I didn't break into the synagogue vault where they keep the Manischewitz for kiddush after Shabbat services.It was not only a way to find a familiar comfort in another in observance and accordance with Jewish culture, but it was also a responsibility: to do my part for a bigger picture, and keep American Jewry intact. But as I launched into adolescence and concurrently became aware of my lesbian leanings, I experienced a sense of dissonance.At the time, the idea of same-sex marriage was a pipe-dream -- the mere thought of coming out at all seemed like a frightening prospect.My sense of Jewishness should not be defined by whom I date or marry, but by the way I put Jewish teachings and ideology into practice.It's possible to create an environment with someone who understands my own need to engage in my Jewishness, and still respect my partner's own background, with a simple word: compromise.With the support of a few trusted individuals, I ultimately came out to my parents, friends, friends-of-friends -- everyone within a five mile radius, so to speak -- and found that my newly-announced homosexuality, in the long run, barely caused a stir.And while I can't say that everyone embraced me with a (rainbow) ticker-tape parade, I can attest that the Jewish community that I was most afraid would repudiate my very existence welcomed me with open arms.
My Jewish family, when it exists, will look different from what most have grown up with, but it will be just as Jewish, no more and no less.

To clarify: my decision isn't a twenty-something's act of rebellion.
When I state that I am open to dating non-Jews, it doesn't mean that I'm averse to going out for a cup of coffee with a yiddishe maidele.
