In the historic sanctuary of Temple Emanu-El in New York City, prominent rabbis representing Judaism’s non-Orthodox movements will wed three Israeli couples who are deprived of the right to marry in Israel because they are either gay, not considered Jewish by Israel’s Chief Rabbinate or unwilling to accept the Rabbinate’s rigid control over Jewish marriage and divorce. The public is invited to support these couples and the cause of religious freedom and equal rights in Israel.
SPECIAL REMARKS BY:
Anat Hoffman, Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center and Director and Founding Member of Women of the Wall.
Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ)
Rabbi Uri Regev, President and CEO of Hiddush
