   The Directors welcome you to JONAH’s web site. Visitors are encouraged to review the materials we have presented in order to glean an understanding of the process of overcoming homosexuality. We believe that the politically-correct myths of the innateness and immutability of the homosexual condition have done incalculable harm to those dealing with unwanted same sex sexual attractions. On this page, we present some ideas about what individuals and families can do when confronted with this issue.

  A Message from the Co-Director of JONAH :: Arthur Goldberg
     
"Is it possible to set an ideal standard of behavior without becoming judgmental?"
Is it possible to be compassionate towards people without becoming permissive?"
"Can Judaism help those individuals choosing to leave the homosexual lifestyle?"

To answer these questions in the affirmative, we not only need to respect the dignity and humanity of every individual created in the image of G-d, whether or not they choose to follow a Torah-sanctioned path, but also need to understand that change from homosexual to heterosexual is possible, that homosexuality is a learned behavior which can be unlearned, and that healing is a lifelong process.>

Dear Parents, Rabbis, Therapists, Teachers, and the Jewish Community JONAH was chosen as our group's name both as an acronym for Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing and to represent the biblical Book of JONAH. The Book of JONAH is the Torah portion read on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, and thus the classic parable of repentance and returning to G-D. For all Jews, Yom Kippur represents the culmination of 40 days of reflection, evaluation, and the willingness to change what has not worked well in our lives.
