Dear Friend:

I am sending you this hot-off-the-presses update about the ongoing struggle for equality at the Kotel. Today, in an unexpected statement, Israel's Supreme Court took the Israeli government to task for dragging its heels and ignoring its own decision to institute changes in the current status at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The government has failed to implement its earlier decision to create an egalitarian prayer space for non-Orthodox worship at the Kotel.

"Enough is enough," said Israeli Supreme Court of Justice President Miriam Naor - and we agree. It's time to show Israel and Jews around the world that all Jews have a place in the Jewish state, that all forms of Judaism are welcomed in Israel, and that the ultra-Orthodox rabbinate doesn't have a monopoly on what it means to be Jewish. 

This new Supreme Court statement gives us added momentum, but we still need to keep up the pressure. 

We will continue to update you as the situation evolves.We are heartened by this latest news and renewed in our efforts to make Israel a true home for Klal Israel. Your continued support makes this important work possible.

L'shalom,
Rabbi Rick Jacobs - First Name
Rabbi Rick Jacobs
President

 

 

Dear Friend,

This past January, Prime Minister Netanyahu made a commitment to the entire Jewish people. His government passed a resolution that included all forms of Jewish worship at the Western Wall, with detailed plans to build an egalitarian prayer space, administered by a pluralistic group including our rabbis. For the first time in the history of the Jewish state, Reform rabbis would join an official government-supported religious body. It was a great shared victory!

Unfortunately, in the months since, the government has successfully avoided implementing its own commitment. We are encouraged by the recent statements of two Supreme Court Justices, urging us to appeal to the government to implement its decision. The appeal will be submitted before Rosh HaShanah.  

But we need your help.

We need you to convey to the Israeli government the urgency and significance of equality for Reform and progressive Jews in Israel. For Israel to be a true democracy, and the home for all Jews, the government must take action. Our insistence on democracy, pluralism and equality in Israel is an expression of our love and commitment to Israel.

We, the leadership of the Reform Movement, are coming together to ask all of our supporters and members to reach out to Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstien, and Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennet, and ask them to fulfill their commitment to make Judaism’s holiest site a home to all Jews.

Please join us in making 5777 the year our joint victory at the Kotel is complete and Israel really is a home to all Jews. We believe that by this time next year we will hear the shofar blast from a Western Wall that represents the best of our values and our diversity.

Shanah Tovah,
Rabbi Rick Jacobs
