As reform Jews, we pride ourselves on inclusion, or to borrow the words of Rabbi Rick Jacobs: Audacious Hospitality. As our secular communities start to progress toward embracing the LGBT community, so does the URJ. It was an honor and a privilege to be present as the resolution of the URJ affirming the full quality and acceptance of transgender and non-gender conforming individuals was unanimously passed. When the resolution was read, there was a portion of it that specifically mentioned inclusion in NFTY.
