“For me, polyamory and Judaism make a lot of sense together,” Pittard said.“When I’m singing niggunim or hosting people at my Shabbat table, it’s just another way of experiencing a connection with a group of people.”

...

Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, senior rabbi at New York’s LGBT synagogue, Congrega-tion Beit Simchat Torah, says she tries to avoid that sort of judgment in her rabbinic practice. Polyamory, she says, is a choice that does not preclude a Jewishly observant, socially conscious life.

“People make all different kinds of choices, and many choices have complex issues related to them,” Kleinbaum said.“The important thing is for all of us to be asking ourselves hard questions about how to create nonexploitative, profoundly sacred lives within the different choices that exist.”
Now we just need to get this accepted in the wider society...
