Three Weddings and a Statement

December 3, 2017 - 11:00 am

Sun | Dec 3 | 11:00 am | Free, but advance registration requested

You are cordially invited to a triple wedding: a celebration not only of love and commitment but of the equality of all Jews.

In Temple Emanu-El’s historic sanctuary, Rabbi Cosgrove and other prominent rabbis representing Judaism’s non-Orthodox movements will join in matrimony three Israeli couples who are deprived of the right to marry at home because they are either gay or not considered Jews according to Israel’s chief rabbinate, or because they reject the rabbinate’s rigid control over Jewish marriages and divorces. Come to support them and the cause of religious freedom and equal rights in Israel. The roar of Mazal Tov will be heard around the world.
