A Religious-Zionist Perspective on Civil Marriage in Israel

In this short video (04:11) created by Ne’emanei Torah Va’Avodaha national religious lobbying group that advocates for more moderate policies on religion and state issues, well-known leaders in the Orthodox Religious Zionist community explain their perspectives on the moral and halachic imperative for civil marriage in Israel. Emphasizing the importance of both liberal and Jewish values in the Jewish democratic state, these figures argue for an alternative to the ultra-Orthodox Chief Rabbinate’s monopoly over personal status issues in order to grant basic rights to all citizens of Israel, regardless of religious affiliation. This video is in Hebrew with English subtitles.
