On Monday, July 8th, 5 Tammuz, the general meeting of the Masorti Movement was held. Jewish Agency Chairman Isaac (Bougie) Herzog reported on "The State of Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People."
His participation is an acknowledgment of the growing importance and influence of the Masorti Movement in Israel. With over 800,000 Israelis identifying with Masorti and other liberal streams of Judaism, it’s clear that our voices are being heard and taken seriously on issues of pluralism, democracy and halachic practice.
The meeting, held at the Yedid Nefesh kehillat in Modi’in, included rabbis, community leaders, and members from all over the country.
The Yedid Nefesh community is in the spirit of the Masorti Movement. In kehillat Yedid Nefesh, prayer and Jewish life unite families into a warm and supportive community.
It’s the perfect place to hold the Masorti Movement’s general meeting and to welcome Chairman Herzog.
