Orthodox Rabbis In California Push For Proposition 8

There’s a two-page ad in the latest issue of the Jewish Journal that reads in part:

The constitutional amendment "that marriage is only between one man and one woman."

This is crucial for the sake of our families, for our children and our society.

This comming Shabbat, Parshat Noach, November 1, is being designated "Shabbat of Family Values." Rabbis throughout the state will be speaking about the importance of supporting Proposition 8…

The ad is sponsored by the Rabbinical Council of California, Agudath Israel of California, the National Council of Young Israel, and the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations.

The only major Orthodox pulpit rabbi I can find who does not support this is Yosef Kanefsky of Bnai David-Judea. Steven Weil and Elazar Muskin are for it.
