TICVA “The Israel Civil Voice Alliance” invites the Sacramento Jewish community for an afternoon of learning about Religious Pluralism in Israel, encompassing issues of acceptance of worship and status for Jews of all denominations.
Featuring a presentation by Yael Yechieli-Persico with participation by our Rabbis and Cantors. Ms. Yechieli-Persico will lay out the issues surrounding Religious Pluralism in Israel, and how it is experienced in the U.S. Topics include; historical overview, differences between Judaism in Israel and in America, issues of who is a Jew regarding Aliyah, marriage, and conversion, religious practices, including at the Western Wall, public finance for religion, divorce, gay rights, and how to love and support Israel in light of or in spite of these issues.
Our Rabbis and Cantors (including Rabbi Greg Wolfe) will lead small group discussions, and give final remarks.
As the center of Jewish community life in Davis and the surrounding area, we are committed to building a community which meets the educational, spiritual and social needs of people in all stages of life.
