For decades I worked in Conservative synagogues, as a Regional Youth Director for USCJ and attended the Rabbinical School at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America while I was in the closet.  In spite of the personal and professional challenges I faced, watching this video makes me proud to still identify as a member of Conservative Movement. 

Yasher koach and thank you to all my teachers, friends and colleagues who brought about the acceptance of LGBTQ people in our schools, synagogues and communities.  Yes, there is much to be done but my neshama is overwhelmed with joy in realizing how far we have come.
