At annual Super Bowl Sunday prayer event, held in Israel for the first time, women at the Western Wall rejoiced in the recent egalitarian win there. But some women consider it a loss.20:11 07.02.16 | 0 comments
I just took a very quick skim of part of the report itself (eleven pages of very fine print). The article is very misleading. The report does not say that Israel is an intolerant society. The report itself says that Israel official policy is and that Israel practices freedom of religion. It does say that only Jewish sites are officially designated as holy sites, but that other sites have de facto protection and also protection under criminal law. Not the best of all possible worlds, but certainly not the worst, either. The problems with Israel's marriage laws are presetnly being debated in Israel. If I remember right, polls show that the great majority of Israelis favor changes. Even Avigdor Lieberman recognizes some of these as problems, inequities, and has suggested changes. But based on some of your comments, maybe some of you think that Lieberman is a left-wing, anti-Zionist, unpatriotic, self-hating Jew.
