Additional Information on the Righteous Persons Foundation

* In 2003, the Righteous Persons Foundation was one of 30 foundations—among them the Nathan Cummings Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation—that financed the production and distribution of the film Trembling Before God. This documentary by Sandi DuBowski “portrays a group of people who face a profound dilemma—how to reconcile their passionate love of Judaism and the Divine with the drastic Biblical prohibitions that forbid homosexuality.” The film features the world’s first openly gay Orthodox rabbi, numerous married Hasidic gays and lesbians, and other Jewish homosexuals.
