Connie and Ruthie’s wedding

On Tuesday, July 26, 2011, I had the great pleasure of attending the wedding of Connie Kurtz and Ruthie Berman, two dear friends who have done so much for so many and were instrumental in keeping me sane as I went through my own coming out process 21 years ago. They had been living in a domestic partnership for 36 years waiting for gay marriage to become legal in New York and were married in a synagogue and under a rainbow colored Chupah (awning) as is customary at traditional Jewish weddings just two days after New York became the sixth and largest U.S. state to recognize same-sex weddings. It was one of the most joyous weddings with many friends and family members in attendance.
