There was a Reform rabbi and 450 guests. But ac- cording to the state of Israel, the wedding never happened. That is because Margulis, who immigrated to Israel from Ukraine at age 4, is not [ Jewish according to Jewish I law, because her mother is I not Jewish. Jewishlaw states that only someone bbrn of a I ,, Jewishm0therorwhohada I Orthodox Jewish conversion I is Jewish. And since there is no civil marriage in Israel, I anyone who is not Jewish | cannot marry another Jew I in Israel. Until her wedding, Mar- l gulis says it didn't bother I her much. She grew up in I Israel and became a combat I soldier. After her mandatory army service, she went to I university and became an | economist. She never seri- I ously considered converting to Judaism, she says, and I believe she shouldnot have to. "Getting married is a ba- sic right that every citizen should have," she told The Media Line. "I've become active in trying to get Israel to institute civil marriage." Israel is both a Jewish and democratic state. The ultra-Orthodox rabbinate controls all issues of personal tatus, including marriage and divorce. To get married in Israel to another Jew, you must prove you are Jewish. If that is impossible, as in Margulis's case, you cannot get married. Thousands of couples have taken advantage of a loophole in the law, in which they fly abroad, often to Cyprus, and have a wedding there. That civil wedding is then recog- nized by the State of Israel and the couple is listed as "married" in Israel. Hiddush, an Israeli-Amer- ican partnership for reli- gious equality in Israel, has launched a campaign for civil marriage in Israel. "The right to marry is one of those universally cherished civil liberties," Uri Regev, CEO of Hiddush told The Media Line. "It is the one area in which Israel excluded itself from the international covenant of civil and politi- cal rights. The law adversely impacts the lives of hundreds of thousands of Israeli citi- zens who cannot marry at all because of religious coercion and of millions who cannot have a marriage ceremony which fits their lifestyle and beliefs." Only Orthodox rabbis may perform wedding ceremonies in Israel. More than 70 per- cent of American Jews define themselves as Reform or Conservative, although these movements have failed to make major inroads in Israel. Conversions done by Reform or Conservative rabbis are also not recognized in Israel. The issue gained traction with the immigration of more than one million people from the former Soviet Union in the 1990s. Israel's Law of Return states that anyone with one Jewish grandpar- ent is entitled to automatic citizenship in Israel, with all of the financial benefits that immigration entails. That classification is the same one the Nazis used during the Holocaust to determine who was Jewish. Of the one million im- migrants from the former Soviet Union, an estimated one-third, like Margulis, are not Jewish according to Jew- ish law. While many of them want to convert, only a few thousands have succeeded. Regev says Hiddush is launching a campaign with Marriage on page 19A 29. "Call Me Irresponsible" songwriter Sammy 31.
