Putting the Kotel Decision in Context

July 20, 2017

The recent Israeli government decision from June 25, 2017, to freeze the Western Wall (Kotel) agreement, and advance a conversion bill, was dramatic, as were the responses from Jewish leaders and organizations in the United States, Israel and other countries. This, of course, did not occur in a vacuum, and should be understood in the proper political, social and demographic context. I have been researching some of these issues and am set to publish (JPPI) a comprehensive report on the status of the Reform and Conservative movements in Israel. 

 

This article, written together with JPPI Senior Fellow Shmuel Rosner, breaks down the decision, offers some additional thoughts and proposes next steps for the Israeli Government, the American Jewish community and the progressive Jewish movements in Israel.
