The Intermountain Jewish News interviewed two local rabbis for their reaction to the Supreme Court ruling on June 26 extending marriage rights to same-sex couples.
Rabbi Evette Lutman, spiritual leader of Reconstructionist Bnai Havurah, told the IJNs Andrea Jacobs that In my lifetime, I never thought I would see this. Ive been out and in the trenches since 1975, and Ive suffered a lot of discrimination. The Supreme Courts decision, she said, is beyond my wildest dreams.
On the other side of the spectrum, Rabbi Tzvi Steinberg, spiritual leader of Denvers Zera Abraham synagogue, said to Chris Leppek that a significant concern I have is that it does put religion on the wrong side of the law.
