On this edition, OutCaster David talks with Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum of Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, an LGBT-inclusive synagogue in New York City.  Rabbi Kleinbaum is a recipient of the Woman of Valor Award given by the Jewish Fund for Justice.  The Forward, a national Jewish weekly newspaper, and Newsweek have both named Rabbi Kleinbaum as one of the top 50 American rabbis. New York Jewish Week, another publication, named her as one of the 45 leading young American  Jewish leaders in New York.  She has been an activist since her college years.

Also, in our first OutCaster audio essay, Mady talks about how appearances can be misleading.
