This video should infuriate us. And make us all the more committed to pursuing justice, pluralism and religious freedom for all in Israel, so that Israel can truly be a home for all Jews. Rabbi Haiyun, of Masorti’s Congregation Moriah in Haifa was taken in for questioning for the “crime” of officiating at a non-Orthodox wedding. We cannot allow this to go unchallenged.
Masorti is making an emergency appeal to support to Rabbi “Dubi” Haiyun, to assist him with legal issues, and equally as important, to make possible Masorti Israel’s grassroots efforts in education and advocacy on behalf of our values. Please support the Masorti Movement’s campaign for Rabbi Haiyun and religious freedom in Israel. And check out Dr. YIzhar Hess’s blog post here.
