RCV Statement about visiting Scholar Steven Greenberg
June 22, 2017
Members of the RCV reaffirm Judaism’s commitment to make every Jew, no matter their personal practice or proclivities, comfortable and welcome in our Shules.
We understand that it has been suggested that the RCV has in some way supported or condoned views expressed by visiting scholar Steven Greenberg about homosexuality, Halacha and Jewish tradition. This is incorrect. The prohibitions of Torah are immutable and it is the considered opinion of the RCV that his unorthodox interpretations of our sacred texts contradict the tenets of Judaism.
We advise anyone who seeks further elaboration or support to approach their personal Rabbi.
