Back by popular demand, co-sponsored by Rabbi Glazier and the Brotherhood, four wine tastings will take place during our Onegs on February 17, 24, March 3 and 10. All the wines to be tasted are kosher for Passover and from Israel.

March 3rd: Mt. Tabor Galilee Chardonnay

The Union for Reform Judaism and the LGBT Community

For decades the Reform Movement has been one of the leading faith voices in Washington, D.C., and around the country advocating for LGBT equality. Our LGBT advocacy began decades ago with the passage of policy resolutions by the Union for Reform Judaism and the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR), and the affiliates. Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) was the first Reform Jewish institution to take a stand supporting the decriminalization of homosexuality in a 1965 resolution . By the end of 1977, both the URJ and the CCAR passed resolutions affirming the right of lesbian and gay individuals to equal protection under the law and calling for the prohibition of discrimination against gay and lesbian individuals .

The Reform Movement's leadership on LGBT equality has had two components: our congressional advocacy seeks to influence the laws of our nation and our inclusion efforts seek to increase the acceptance and full inclusion of LGBT Jews in the Reform Movement.
