Three Weddings and a Statement

We love Israel and are concerned about equal rights for all to love in Israel, which is why, in partnership with the Israel Religious Action Center, three Israeli couples will be married at WHC in a triple wedding officiated by rabbis representing Judaism’s different movements. These couples cannot or will not marry in Israel under the auspices of the ultra-Orthodox Chief Rabbinate for three very different reasons: one is a transgender, gay couple; the second has one partner that Israel’s Chief Rabbinate does not consider to be Jewish; and the third rejects the Rabbinate’s rigid control over Jewish marriage.
