Group Description

This group is intended for GLBT Jews in the Chicago area who are Orthodox Jews, or who have an Orthodox Jewish background.

This means that you don't have to be frum any more to be on the list. But this is not a list for bashing Orthodox Judaism. A decent respect for others, even if they don't show us respect, will be observed on this list. That doesn't mean whitewashing the behavior of the frum community towards us, but it does mean that members are expected to consider Hillel's dictum that "What is hateful to you, don't do to others."

This is a members-only list. As listowner, I will do my level best to screen those wishing to join the list, but there's obviously a limit to how much I can guarantee this as a safe space. That being the case, I recommend that if you are closeted and worried about it, you consider creating a separate e-mail account with a fake name for use on this list.

I picked the name Chi-Asiron because asiron is Hebrew for "one tenth". Chi is for Chicago, of course. If we get a community going here, maybe someday we can meet in real life as well.
