Teshuva (responsum) on homosexuality written by a member of the Conservative Movement’s Committee on Jewish Law and Standards (CJLS), which analyzes previous teshuvot written by Rabbis Dorff and Roth. Rabbi Rabinowitz argues that in order to define a halakhic position on homosexuality, we must deal with the prohibition itself, and not with the variety of reasons or interpretations offered. He also discusses the obligation to procreate and how this relates to homosexuality. He argues that we must draw a distinction between those Jews who do not observe the prohibitions against homosexuality, and those who openly advocate homosexuality as a viable, alternate Jewish lifestyle. Finally, he argues that it is prohibited to discriminate against gays and lesbians.
