Build it an they will come? – A victory for the Progressive Jews Everwhere


This story highlights a huge victory for Progressive Judaism (equivalent to Reform in the US) in Israel.  Orthodox synagogues are funded entirely by the government, the rabbis are paid by the state, and they receive state funds.  Only orthodox, approved by the chief rabbi (I’m not a fan).  Thanks to those who supported the Ride 4 Reform – those funds helped achieve this victory.
