The results of Israel’s elections and the formation of a governing coalition that will include representation of the ultra-Orthodox parties, progress that has been made over the past few years toward achieving religious freedom and equality may be compromised.
We are fortunate to have Rabbi Uri Regev, founder and CEO of Hiddush – for Religious Freedom and Equality in Israel, with us at Shabbat services on Friday evening, May 15, to give his analysis of the impact of the elections and to discuss how we, American Jews, can involve ourselves in addressing the challenges that are before us – a key, he believes, to the future of Israel as a democratic, inclusive Jewish nation.
We hope that all of our congregants will take advantage of Rabbi Regev’s appearance at Temple Beth Sholom and will join us at the service to learn more about this issue, critical to Israel, to all of us, to our community, and to World Jewry.
We invite you to read the an article about Israeli opinions regarding secular weddings in Israel.
