Knesset members from across the political spectrum will hold an emergency session on Wednesday to demand that the government grant official recognition to the non-Orthodox movements in response to the massacre carried out at a Conservative synagogue in Pittsburgh a week ago.

It is rare, if not unprecedented, for members of the coalition and opposition to join forces in this manner to change the religious status quo in the country.
