Proposed Federal Marriage Amendment to the United States Constitution

Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR), 2004

The Central Conference of American Rabbis' (CCAR), at its 115th Annual Convention in 2004, adopted a resolution in opposition to amend the United States Constitution with regard to the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment. The basis for the position taken includes four key points: "upholding the integrity of the United States Constitution concerning its guarantee of equal protection for all citizens;" reaffirming the CCAR's commitment to "pursuing full civil marriage rights for same-gender couples; " opposition to any proposal that limits these rights at a federal or state level; and, "encourages CCAR members to play a leadership role on the federal, state and local levels on this issue."
