The November 22 article, "After PA synagogue shooting, Sha'ar Zahav to enhance security," was updated online to clarify that Congregation Sha'ar Zahav president Nancy Levin identifies as a lesbian; that there are no other LGBT synagogues in the Bay Area, though there are many that are LGBTQ-welcoming; that the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College was the first rabbinical program to admit openly LGBT people, beginning in 1984; and that it was Copeland's column in the J-Weekly where she wrote, "At my synagogue, I'll take 20 Mennonites over armed guards." The online version includes a link to that column.

Updated, 12/6/18: The clarification was updated to note Bay Area reference.
