Resolution of the Women of Reform Judaism National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods -- Homosexuality

National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), January 1, 1965

The text of the Resolution of the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods (now Women of Reform Judaism) deplores the harassment of homosexuals by community authorities. The resolution goes on to recommend aligning with the point-of-view held by those religious leaders and legal experts urging decriminalizing homosexuality between consenting adults. According to Rabbi Yoel Kahn in a 1989 article, this resolution was passed but never implemented because the UAHC never passed the resolution on which this was based at its own 1965 Biennial convention.
