Conservative Movement Officially Permits Kitniyot on Passover

Not that anyone is already thinking about Passover, but the CJLS of the Conservative Movement has just posted online two responsa that permit kitniyot on Passover. The first is a translation and modification of an already existing responsum in Hebrew by David Golinkin and the second is a new one.

    I don’t want to be all “Conservative halacha, hur hur hur” about this, but don’t imagine the CJLS’s conclusion was ever in doubt.

    This is the type of issue groups like Open Orthodoxy should be busy with, instead of hyper-political (and old hat) things like “women’s issues.” Good for the Conservative movement. I agree with the points made.
