Including Gay and Lesbian Couples in a Premarital Education Program in Reform Congregations

By Lynn Levy

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2008

The author explains and analyzes the process through which the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) made a decision regarding an ethical dilemma surrounding a premarital education program for congregational use. She approached the dilemma using the typology of preferred conceptions of people, preferred outcomes for people, and preferred instrumentalities for people. This methodology, the author contends, clarifies the value conflict for the involved parties.
