Resolution of the National Federation of Temple Youth 1991 -- Homosexuality

National Federation of Temple Youth, Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), January 1, 1991

This resolution adopted by the National Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) was in response to the 1990 Ad Hoc Committee on Homosexuality and the Rabbinate of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR). The resolution commends the CCAR on its stance that allows gay and lesbian rabbis to be ordained. The resolution expresses concern regarding one statement in the report stating homosexuals cannot fulfill their covenantal obligations. On this point, the NFTY resolution urges CCAR to examine possible implications of this phrase and evaluate whether or not a change is warranted.
