  1. What a wonderful outcome when a synagogue has discussions and examines their values before taking action. U fortunately, very unfortunately, my synagogue treated a very similar situation completely differently. In a secret meeting ( executive session) the board voted not to welcome a convicted, remorseful, beloved by many sex offender. The discussion , on the list serve and in a closed email box, came later, followed by much bitterness. The person in question, a committed Jew, lost the opportunity to have an othewise fine congregation help him heal.
