Celebrate Love & Support Marriage Equality in Israel - Tues, Mar 26
3 Weddings and a Statement
Celebrate LOVE and support marriage equality in Israel!
Date: Tuesday, March 26
Time: 6:30 pm
Location: Washington Hebrew Congregation, 3935 Macomb St. NW, Washington DC
With great joy and meaning, Washington Hebrew Congregation and Adas Israel Congregation invite you to a very special event welcoming three couples into the covenant of marriage.
These couples could not or would not legally marry in Israel under the auspices of the ultra-Orthodox Chief Rabbinate for three very different reasons: one couple is gay, the second couple has one partner that Israel’s Chief Rabbinate does not consider to be Jewish, the third couple rejects the Rabbinate’s rigid control over Jewish marriage.
They would have preferred to marry in their home country. In fact, each has already had a wedding ceremony in Israel, but the government will not recognize their marriages. Much like “commitment ceremonies” that same-sex couples had in the United States before the Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage, the three couples are married only in their hearts.
