Reform Movement representatives describe ‘quiet revolution’ to Knesset committee

Representatives of the American Reform Movement appeared before the Knesset’s Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee Wednesday morning and described a “quiet revolution” in the state’s approach to non-Orthodox denominations during a session aimed at reinforcing ties between Israelis and Diaspora Jews.

Speaking before the committee and senior coalition and opposition lawmakers, Gilad Kariv, the executive director of the Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism, called the meeting a “historic moment.”

“A quiet revolution is under way in Israeli pluralism” and the Diaspora committee must verify the government’s adherence to its commitments regarding such issues, Kariv stated.
