Gays and Conservatives

Curious about what the Conservative Movement actually did this week? Go to Josh Yuter where you'll find a very good discussion.

Wondering about my view? Too bad: I'm an Orthodox Jew, and I don't feel compelled to comment on rulings made by other denominations.

I will say this: How cool is it that a group of Jews were able to get together and make an important decision like grown-ups? No fiats were issued. No appeals to authority were made. No angry denunciations were slapped on walls or bus kiosks. Instead a group of qualified experts sat around the table, argued the question, wrote up their opinions and took a vote. I won't tell you what I think of the result, but I am envious of their process.
