    Thank you to whoever wrote this!

    It is exciting as I open this new chapter in my life, fighting for progressive values and LGBT equality, and being a voice for the voiceless, to remember the wonderful times I had at, and work I did for, Beth Chayim Chadashim. It was in Los Angeles that I began Marriage Equality California and started the Valentine’s Day Protests and wrote my first legislation to help gay and lesbian couples. I was inspired by Rabbi Lisa Edwards and all the wonderful people I met at BCC to fight for both gay and Jewish values.

    I will never forget my time at BCC, and I’m very pleased you haven’t forgotten me.
    If any of you want to help me in my campaign, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
    Frankly, your help could well make the difference in my race.
