Placing Homosexuals in Congregations

By Kassel Abelon

Rabbinical Assembly of America (RA), 1993

Rabbi Abelson argues that since the intent of the "Consensus Statement on Homosexuality" (1992) was to not ordain gay and lesbian rabbis and cantors, and not to permit their admission into professional organizations, the Joint Placement Commission should not recommend an "avowed homosexual" for placement in congregations.
