From Rabbi Ariel: I salute President Obama’s clear support of marriage equality today. As a Rabbi I represent a tradition which celebrates the idea of evolving understanding. Religion is essentially the practice of doing kindness and justice. Through our practice, our understanding of God and God’s will evolves and deepens. While love is an eternal good that we all value, our ability to understand the true depth and meaning of love is a lifelong process for each of us. God created each of us in the Divine Image, and created in us many diverse ways of being. As we mature as a human race, may we continue to deepen our respect for all the forms of love which bless us.
