Search for first same sex Jewish marriage couple begins

10th December 2013

Liberal Judaism has started its search for the first ever same sex couple to marry under a chuppah. The search comes hot on the heels of the Government's announcement this afternoon that marriage will be equal in England and Wales from 29th March 2014.

We are proud to have been part of this historic fight for justice right from the start, working closely with Unitarians and Quakers in Britain, and later, with the Movement for Reform Judaism.

Until March 2014, marriage will continue to be segregated in England and Wales, with our rabbis banned from solemnising loving same sex Jewish marriages and couples forced to hold two separate ceremonies - one legal and one religious.
