Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, senior rabbi of Congregation Beit Simchat Torah in Manhattan, told the Post last week, “The rhetoric is very high and people on all sides of this are very charged up. The center’s leadership has been doing an incredible job listening to people and trying to find the best path through these thorny issues. They’ve been thoughtful, they’ve been balanced, but you can’t win for losing here.”
Kleinbaum, who is a lesbian, added that “I am hopeful that thoughtful, fairminded people can discuss these burning issues of the day without destroying each other in the process. I am proud of the center’s work and its leadership.”
