An ultra-Orthodox rabbi and Knesset Member strives to break down religious barriers and fights against religious coercion in Israel.
American born Haredi (ultra Orthodox) Rabbi Dov Lipman was recently elected to the 19th Knesset (Parliament) as a member of the Yesh Atid (There Is a Future) party, a centrist party led by MK (Member of Knesset) Yair Lapid. Rabbi Lipman rose to national and international prominence for his role in challenging and combating religious extremists in Bet Shemesh, Israel. Rabbi Kalb will be speaking to Rabbi Lipman about the many controversial issues he will be tackling. Rabbi Lipman’s Knesset agenda includes requiring ultra-Orthodox to serve in the Israeli Army and enter the workforce; removing the ultra Orthodox stranglehold over religious services in Israel; and serving as a bridge between Israel and Diaspora Jewry. Rabbi Lipman also hopes to work toward eliminating the legislation that has caused the arrests of several women at the Western Wall for wearing a tallit (prayer shawl). He believes that a democratic government cannot dictate how men and women practice religion and is against religious coercion. MK Rabbi Lipman has rabbinic ordination from Ner Israel, one of the top ultra Orthodox Rabbinical schools in America, and a Masters in Education from Johns Hopkins University.
