Shabbat Service with Guest Speaker Uri Regev, Friday, September 13 at 8:00 p.m.

Rabbi Regev's topic for the evening will be “This Week’s Elections: Their Crucial Implications for Israelis, Israel, and World Jewry”.

 

Religion and State issues have come to the fore in the coming elections. These issues have serious implications for Israelis, the governmental arms of the State, especially the judiciary, and for Diaspora Jewry. Rabbi Regev will focus on what is at stake in these elections and what his past and present experiences suggest will occur depending on the elections’ outcomes.

 

Rabbi Uri Regev heads Hiddush – For Religious Freedom and Equality, an educational and advocacy organization that works to fully realize Israel’s Declaration of Independence promise for “Freedom of Religion and Conscience” and “Full Social and Political Equality Regardless of Religion”.

 

He was founding chair and executive director of the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC), the public and advocacy arm of the Reform movement in Israel. Later he served as president of the World Union for Progressive Judaism.

 

He is a cum laude graduate of Tel Aviv University Law School and was ordained as rabbi by the Hebrew Union College-Institute of Religion in Jerusalem.
