Gay couples may soon be able to marry legally in both Reform and Liberal synagogues under proposed changes to marriage laws.
Same-sex couples are expected to be given the right to hold legal civil
partnership ceremonies in places of worship.
The move would enable non-Orthodox communities to hold a wedding under a chuppah, and immediately follow it with a civil ceremony in a shul.
Liberal Judaism, Quakers and gay rights groups, led the pressure on the government to offer greater equality.
