Israel could learn from American Judaism's example how not to discriminate against women or 'ordinary' Jews. By sidelining religious extremism, Israel can be both fully Jewish and also proudly meet its goal of protecting the dignity and liberty of its citizens.
Rabbi Judith Hauptman
As a Conservative Jew, I am pained that a movement that stands for tradition and change has chosen to endorse an ancient bias against gays and lesbians. We should be endorsing fully egalitarian same-sex marriage, and not a second-class alternative.
