Rabbi Uri Regev, attorney-at-law, is founding president of Hiddush (see inset below). Previously, he founded and led the Israel Religious Action Center and later served as President of the World Union for Progressive Judaism. He led and argued legal cases to historic victories before the Israeli Supreme Court regarding “Who is a Jew,” equitable funding for Reform and Conservative institutions and representation on Israeli religious councils, as well as for the rights of Sabbath-observant Jews. He appears frequently on Israeli radio and television and internationally in print and social media.
HIDDUSH - Freedom of Religion in Israel, Inc. is a non-denominational and non-partisan Diaspora-Israel partnership rooted in the commitment to, and deep love for, Israel, and the belief that realizing the promise of religious freedom and equality will strengthen Israel as a democracy and a Jewish state, as well as the relationship between Israel and World Jewry, especially that of the next generation.
