Rabbi Daniel Mirvis issues “statement” on marriage equality postal survey

7 Sep 2017 Mizrachi Centre non-statement on marriage equality

ט”ז אלול תשע”ז

Dear Members,

Many of you will have seen statements by different Rabbis and Rabbinical bodies in the last couple of days about the upcoming postal survey.

I have not yet made any public statements and I plan on remaining silent on the matter.  This is because I do not see it as my role to tell you or anyone else how to vote.  Those who wish to seek my personal guidance are welcome to do so, as with any other matter.

The issues being discussed are very real and very personal for a number of members of our community.  I encourage everybody to be careful with their words and actions so that we as a community remain respectful and welcoming to all.

Shabbat Shalom

Rabbi Daniel Mirvis
Senion Rabbi
