Michelle Miller is one of many inspiring subjects who bravely shared their story in Sandi Dubowski’s Trembling Before G-D, a groundbreaking documentary that shattered assumptions about faith and sexuality. Michelle helped lift the veil on what it’s like to be a gay Orthodox Jew, and inspired a generation of young people to embrace their truths. Since its 2002 premiere, the film has been seen by over nine million people, creating community and solidarity around the world.
