Rivlin meets religious leaders to bridge gaps over muezzin law

After having voiced his objections to the controversial muezzin law, President Reuven Rivlin sought to bridge gaps between Muslim and Jewish spiritual leaders by bringing them together at his official residence on Tuesday to see if there was a way around the conflict.

Rivlin told his guests he hoped the meeting would impact on the general public and that a common voice coming from the meeting would set the tone for public opinion. Rivnlin has already stated that the proposed law would be detrimental to democracy and would indicate that democracy in Israel is only for Jews, There was consensus at the meeting that there must be more frequent and intensive dialogue between the representatives of both faiths.
