Wanted: A Secular Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai must help and take care of this public, which has despaired of the struggle to separate religion from the state and law.

A struggle for Tel Aviv's character is being waged these days. The struggle may be taking place locally, but its outcome will impact on all who live in Israel and on the state's future character. It will determine whether Israel will be a state subjected to the diktats of religion and Jewish law, or a liberal state that allows every person freedom of religion as well as freedom from religion.
