To a new year of sweetness, health, happiness and justice for all.

The Jewish Reform Movement has been an advocate of gay and lesbian rights since 1965, when the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) passed a resolution calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality. In 1977, the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) passed their first resolutions dealing with this issue, calling for human rights for homosexuals.

Here is a It Gets Better video from the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism

“As Jews we believe in the inherent dignity of all people, for we read in the Torah, "So God created the human beings in [the divine] image, creating [them] in the image of God, creating them male and female" (Gen. 1:27). As human beings, we have a responsibility to ensure that the spark of the Divine presence in each individual is respected. To that end, we hope that our participation in the It Gets Better campaign will remind LGBT youth who are struggling that they are valued and loved.”
