Israel is the only democratic nation in the world in which Jews are only permitted to marry in one way, if at all. This is a central battle for us at Israel Hofsheet as believe that freedom of marriage is a basic right. Freedom of marriage should be available to those who do not wish to marry, for a variety of reasons, through the rabbinate, as well as for those who cannot marry through the rabbinate: different streams of Judaism, LGBTs, people without religion, and those who are disqualified, for various reasons, from marrying.
From a battle that began as a campaign to raise consciousness, the freedom of marriage campaign has, in 2014, a call to demand civil marriage for everyone!
