About The Israeli Nation-State Law by Rabbi Asher Knight

The Israeli Knesset recently passed a controversial “Nation-State law.” The law has received statements of opposition by Jewish organizations and communities from throughout the world. Please see the links below for more information from our Israeli partners in the Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism and the Jewish Federations of North America. This is a deeply divisive law and we want to share with you the reasons why so many Jewish groups have spoken out against this law in love for Israel, Zionism and respect for the Jewish and democratic state envisioned by Israel’s founders.

Temple Beth El will continue to advocate for an Israel that will be true to its own founding declaration of equality for all within its land, with the freedom to worship and to live with true hope for the future.
