A Rainbow Thread is the new, definitive anthology for queer Jewish history. Spanning two millennia, five continents, and containing translations from fifteen different languages, this unprecedented collection of texts bears witness to the many ways in which queer and Jewish identities have intersected, resurrecting the memory of a legacy that many have assumed cannot or does not exist. Covering poetry, drama, literature, law, commentary, and memoir, this collection serves as a narrative for a forgotten past, a textbook for the study of both Jewish and queer history, and a resource for non-specialists, students, and scholars alike.
