As a queer Jewish teenager, I have the uncommon privilege of having relationships with people between 20 and 50 years older than me, with similar intersectionalities.
I have been able to develop these relationships through Congregation Bet Haverim, a synagogue founded by gay and lesbian Jews in Atlanta. I was raised in this community, and as I get older, I am becoming a leader in it.
On a recent Wednesday night, I sat in our small community building eating Indian food with many of these adults. The topic of conversation was privilege.
