Israeli Orthodox rabbis draft homosexual ‘containment’ document

An Orthodox rabbinic organization in Israel drafted what it said is the country’s first Jewish legal document by such a group on how to regulate the behavior of homosexual members of Orthodox communities.

The document by the nonprofit Beit Hillel, a rabbinical group of 200 members that promotes inclusiveness in Orthodox Judaism, “sets forth guidelines, which are founded in halachah, on how to contain people with a homosexual orientation within faith communities,” director Rabbi Shlomo Hecht told JTA Friday, using the Hebrew-language word for Jewish religious law.
