Pluralism in Israel Board Statement Approved 2017-9-27
The WRJ Board passed a Statement about Pluralism in Israel at our online conference in September, 2017.
WRJ is committed to advancing religious pluralism and equal rights for women and minorities in Israel and works collaboratively with the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ) and other organizations to secure the rights and well-being of Jews wherever they live. WRJ’s commitment to and interest in Israel is best demonstrated by the many times it has spoken out for and about Israel through statements and resolutions. Since 1915, WRJ has issued almost 100 statements and resolutions that relate to Israel. In 1993, WRJ passed a resolution on Pluralism in Israel reaffirming our commitment to religious pluralism in Israel and our support of religious rights for all Israelis.
