On Israel’s Marriage Policies
Tue, 07/15/2014 - 20:00

In response to the Opinion piece, “Honeymoon Israel: Birthright For Young Marrieds” (July 4), I know the federations are searching for allies to fight many of Israel’s self-destructive, anti-intermarriage and anti-civil marriage policies.

If the proposed trips were truthful with these couples, the federations could gain valuable allies in a fight to make Israel more democratic and pluralistic.

But the intermarried couples have to be told the truth.

The Jewish Week feels comments create a valuable conversation and wants to feature your thoughts on our website. To make everyone feel welcome, we won't publish comments that are profane, irrelevant, promotional or make personal attacks.


In other words, you want to boycott Israel (trips) because you don't like in-marriage. And then you have the temerity to suggest that anti-intermarriage is self destructive? On the contrary, it is intermarriage which is destructive, as history has shown.
