Same Sex Commitment Ceremonies

TBI prides itself on its egalitarian values. Not only are men and women treated equally in virtually every respect, but there is also a respectful and welcoming attitude towards those who form minority groups in our society. We welcome and celebrate all members of our diverse community, including lesbian, bisexual and gay people who are same sex attracted, as well as transgender individuals whose gender identity differs from the one assigned to them at birth.

Some years ago the Council of Progressive Rabbis (Moetzah) of the Union of Progressive Judaism in Australia, New Zealand and Asia (UPJ) passed a resolution allowing its members to perform commitment ceremonies for Jewish gay and lesbian couples. TBI rabbis are proud to officiate at such unions.
