Religion and State in Israel: The view from the field

Special guest is Orly Erez-Likhovski

Orly Erez-Likhovski graduated from the Faculty of Law at Tel Aviv University. After clerking at the Israeli Supreme Court, she studied for a Masters degree in Law at Columbia University, New York, focusing on human rights. Orly is a member of both the Israeli and the New York bar.                                                               

Since 2004, Orly has been working as an attorney at the Israel Religious Action Center of the Reform Movement in Israel and since 2014 she is the director of the legal department of IRAC.  In this capacity, she led to significant legal achievements such as abolishing gender segregation on public transportation, breaking the Orthodox monopoly regarding the payment of salaries of State employed Rabbis and achieving State funding for non Orthodox synagogues. 

Orly is leading the legal struggle against discrimination on the basis of religious affiliation, gender and race and litigates before the Israeli Supreme court precedent-setting cases on the issues of exclusion of women and incitement to racism.

Orly is a member of the Reform congregation in Mevasseret Zion, where she lives with her family.
