We join with so many others in our KI community in celebrating the Supreme Court decisions which have given equal rights to same sex couples seeking to marry. The expansion of a right has always been a crucial step in helping to guarantee that right for the future, and we welcome the opportunity to expand the legal protections for same sex partners and their children that this court has made possible in California. We pray and will continue to work to bring about full legal rights for all same sex families at the Federal level as well, for we believe that one of the fundamental spiritual teachings of Judaism is that all human beings are created in God’s image. We look forward to the opportunity once again to officiate at same sex marriages in California and the privilege of helping to create and nurture loving families. It is a good day for California.
