Quotes

"The issue of equal marriage on which Liberal Judaism led and gave evidence to Parliament has always been to us a matter of prophetic justice, in accordance with our founding principles that fairness trumps legal and ritual technicalities. We're delighted."
"We're really excited and can't believe that it happened so quickly and we're now married."
Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell insisted: "No ignorance or prejudice can hold back the triumph of love."
