Aviva Goldberg is the ritual ..., 16 June 2014 [cached]
Aviva Goldberg is the ritual leader at Shir Libeynu, an unaffiliated, inclusive congregation that formed in the late 1990s in Toronto as a place for LGBTQ Jews to worship comfortably.
Raised in a modern Orthodox home, she turned to Reconstructionist Judaism as an adult and came out as a lesbian at age 38 (she's now 65).
Goldberg recalled how, two decades ago, even at a Reconstructionist synagogue, she and her partner weren't allowed to come up for an aliyah together to mark their anniversary.
While great strides have been made, she said, the community still has a way to go overall.
