Three Steps for Preserving Israel for Our Daughters

Chaim Landau, the director of Perspectives Israel, proposes a three step plan for parents to ensure Israel remains an open, inclusive and democratic country for the next generation.

1) Be active in our schools, whether secular (Mamlachti) or religious (Dati Mamlachti) to ensure that all students get an engaging, top-notch Jewish education. This education must present “a Judaism in which the status of Jewish women is inviolable.”

2) We should affiliate with “synagogues and institutions that relate to women as full members and not as spectators.”

3) Insist that the political parties we vote for or affliate consider the inclusion of women as non-negotiable. Women cannot be used as bargaining chips for coalition building.
