“Homosexuality and Judaism have traditionally been considered incompatible. Not anymore,” mentioned the brochure announcing a proud evening of literary readings and discussion led by queer Jewish writers at Makor, the cultural and artistic center on West 67 Street. On October 27, four authors showcased their recently published work, including, on the far left, T Cooper (novelist of “Some of the Parts”); Aaron Hamburger (author of the short-story collection, “The View From Stalin’s Head”); Bruce Shenitz, the executive editor of Out magazine, (editor of “The Man I Might Become: Gay Men Write About Their Fathers); and Aryeh Lev Stollman (author of “The Far Euphrates”).
