Alison: Bisexual and Jewish

Alison is married to a bisexual Jew – she can keep a kosher home, go to services and
celebrate festivals with him, and go to Bicon together, and mix with other bisexuals. She joined
Liberal Judaism in the late 1990s, first the Settlement Synagogue, then after she’d moved house,
she joined North London Progressive Synagogue. She has not joined any Jewish LGBT groups, because she was not sure how welcoming they would be. She had experiences with feminists and lesbians who thought being bisexual was just a phase. She was a member of a synagogue with a lesbian rabbi who pooh-poohed her and told her she was not part
of the LGBT community. She thinks it can be improved, it would be good to know if there are more
bisexuals out there.
