Homosexuality why does it not address a female being intimate with another woman.?
Also suppose with the male there is no penetration what so ever ?

What if you commit the same prohibition, punishable by death, over and over and over, willfully? Aren't you committing rebellion abainst HaShem multiple times, thereby losing your outer Jewish identity? Reply

in response to Sara:

Ultimately our sages teach that no one can be irrevocably cut off from G-d and their Jewish identity. "Nothing stands in the way of repentance". G-d is a loving parent, Who no matter how grievously we have sinned against Him, will always welcome us back with open and outstretched arms when we sincerely return to Him. Reply
