As in Christianity, the various Jewish traditions are divided along conservative - liberal lines. Reform Judaism, the largest and one of the most liberal traditions, accept the homosexual orientation itself as morally neutral. Orthodox Judaism consider all homosexual behavior as inherently sinful, even when it occurs within a loving, committed relationship. The mainline tradition, represented by Conservative Judaism is experiencing an internal conflict over homosexuality -- much like the mainline denominations in Christianity.
