Abstract

n her article, Martine Gross studies the multiplication of family models from the point of view of homosexual French Jews. Taking off from the history of a gay and lesbian group, Beit Haverim, she shows how Jewish institutions in France have moved from “grossly ignoring” simply the possibility of a double identity – Jewish
and homosexual – to gradually accepting Beit Haverim as an interlocutor. But she also tells the story of the growing awareness among rabbis and the organized community that a compound reality actually exists
