Just in time for Passover!
:D My shul is in the process of merging with another congregation. The joint committee has produced a mission statement that included this statement:
"The Ritual Sub-committee also discussed their view that the new synagogue provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people within the guidelines of Conservative Judaism and with Rabbinic guidance..."
Next year in Jerusalem!
happy Easter & Passover to all
thats so exciting! Thats a very warming statment : )
Happy Easter and Passover to you as well
Wow, that's wonderful to hear. Happy Passover.
Happy Pesach, tallit.
We have three welcoming congregations in Worcester, two Reform and one Conservative. There are others in the communities around Worcester.
Many of the Jewish gay men I have met have strong identities as Jews but feel alienated from organized Judaism. Like many of us who identify as Christian they have felt clobbered by culture and religion.
I am happy to hear your new shul is addressing welcoming LGBT people.
