LGBTQ in Israel: When Tel Aviv Meets the Rabbinate

Matan Zamir Deputy Consul General in SF grew up in Jerusalem where his family has lived for nine generations. He is a lawyer; he received his L.L.B. from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 2008 and like any passionate Israeli, Matan enjoys his basketball, and upon moving to San Francisco he became a proud Golden State fan. Zamir and his American partner Dylan Chuilli, are excited to be in San Francisco and the couple, who are avid wine connoisseurs, enjoy exploring California's wine country. As an interfaith couple — Chuilli is a non-practicing Christian — Zamir told the Bay Area Reporter during an interview earlier this month that he looks forward to working with the San Francisco Bay Area's large interfaith community.
