  1. This is a truly important development.

  2. However, I am not sure what the freebie is. the site allows only a brief preview before requiring that that user pay for a subscription.

  3. I hadn’t realized they require payment. Sorry for the mistake.

  4. Yisrael Dubitsky’s article is on a web site affiliated with Conservative Judaism, which “permits” and encourages the intolerable abominations of so-called “g_y Rabbis” and so-called “l_sbian Rabbis,”

    I would like to see that link deleted and replaced with a similar article by an Orthodox Rabbi.
