Video: Sephardic Jew- "Isaac Namdar, MD - A Community at the Crossroads of Religion and Homosexuality"


Dr. Isaac Namdar was born in the Middle East and immigrated with his family to the United States at the age of 16. He pursued higher education and became a successful Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeon, with multiple accomplishments and publications in his field.

Although Dr. Namdar and his husband have been active in gay rights issues for a long time, Dr. Namdar got a renewed mission to educate others about marriage equality after he was outed to his ancestral community and subsequently excommunicated from his synagogue.

Dr. Namdar is currently on a national book tour and hopes to bridge the big division between religion and homosexuality. He has also participated in national teleconferencing events and has served as role models and coach for others in religious communities struggling with their sexuality.
