In a major breakthrough in the campaign for religious pluralism, the Israeli government has agreed to finance the salaries of some Reform and Conservative rabbis.
The decision followed a petition to Israel's Supreme Court by NIF grantee Israel Religious Action Centre (IRAC) asking the State to fund the salary of Reform Rabbi Miri Gold. The government agreed to pay the salaries of Reform and Conservative rabbis in rural communities with congregations of more than 50 families.
