LGBT Resources

Resources on Gay and Lesbian Marriages

The Central Conference of American Rabbis presents A Guide to Gay and Lesbian Marriage. Since 1993, the CCAR has gone on record supporting full civil rights for gay men and lesbians. In 1996, the CCAR articulated its support for full equal civil rights, including marriage for gay and lesbian couples, and its opposition to “governmental efforts to ban gay and lesbian marriage.” In 2000, the CCAR resolved that “the relationship of a Jewish, same gender couple is worthy of affirmation through appropriate Jewish ritual.” It further resolved to “call upon the CCAR to develop both educational and liturgical resources in this area.”
