The Orange on the Sedar Plate

The orange is a symbol of the struggle by Jews who used to be ignored by our traditions. These Jews are gays, lesbians, women, and Jews by Choice who want to participate as full partners in religious and community Jewish life. The orange is also a sign of change. Today,we have all kinds of Jews including openly gay Rabbi Women who are prominent religious leaders in our community.
