Karen Newman & Susan Crane: a happy Rainbow family

Karen and Susan have been together for 28 years. They tell Rainbow Jews about their mutual commitment, civil partnership, family planning and the joys of a happy same-sex family.

They see themselves as very boring and ordinary and that this is the crowning achievement of Gay Liberation. Susan wants to be in a society where is just doesn’t matter that they are gay and thinks we are getting there.

They want other people to see that it is possible to have synagogue involvement for gay couples and by speaking out to encourage more people to find that public recognition of their relationship in a Jewish context.

"Rainbow Jews provides an important source of Jewish history. I urge people to get involved and support this project in whichever way they can"

"I am honoured to support Rainbow Jews and to celebrate the huge positive contribution that Jewish people make to the LGBT community and to our wider society. Jewish and LGBT people share many parallels of oppression and of triumph over adversity. As victims of prejudice, it is important for us to stand together united against all hate."
