Tel Aviv Mayor Huldai: Israel should follow Ireland’s lead on gay marriage

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai thinks that Israel should put gay marriage to a popular vote by referendum, just as Ireland successfully did last week.

"I think that the state of Israel can learn from Ireland, that just recently, in a referendum, approved gay marriage. I think that in the state of Israel, given the awakening that’s happening, it’s important for there to be a city that says ‘here, a person can live their life,’” he told The Jerusalem Post Wednesday evening at the launch of Tel Aviv’s Pride festival.
