Email: show

Raised orthodox, Jayson spent two years in a Yeshiva in Jerusalem and continued his Yeshiva studies in Brooklyn while attending university. Jayson was an active participant in JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality) before coming out as gay and founding He'bro, a promotions company for gay Jews. Jayson speaks publicly about his experiences with JONAH and also assists Jewish organizations with LGBT inclusivity efforts.

Once Upon a Gay …

A Jewish Journey through the Ex-Gay Movement

Identity & Global Culture, Social Justice

Come hear a story about an individual journey through the Jewish ex-gay movement. After consulting many rabbis and with a desire to marry and lead a traditional orthodox life, Jayson enters reparative therapy to overcome his same-sex attractions and live in the orthodox community he was raised in. Hear about his five years trying to change from gay to straight and his finally coming out. This session is for educators, rabbis, and all to learn about this movement and to explore why one would join.
