Gay and Lesbian Rights

Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), Women of Reform Judaism, April 25, 1997

In accordance with the Women of Reform Judaism's (WRJ) commitment to the idea that all human beings are created betselem elohim (in the divine image) and entitled to share fully and equally in the rights and benefits accorded to committed heterosexual couples in our society, Women of Reform Judaism calls upon its affiliates to: Inform their members about the areas in which lesbian and gay couples are subject to discrimination and how such discrimination can be alleviated; to urge support of federal, state, provincial and local legislation that will require spousal benefits for lesbian and gay individuals in committed relationships; and to seek the enactment of legislation in all necessary jurisdictions that would legalize same sex civil marriage.
