2019 Progressive Appeal

UIA Progressive Appeal 2019

We are excited to share the news that our distinguished guest speaker for this year's campaign will be Orly Erez Likhovski, head of the legal team at the Israel Religious Action Centre.

Israel's "Ruth Bader Ginsburg", Orly has:

  • Led the fight to end gender segregation in Israel, winning cases in the Israeli Supreme Court ending gender discrimination on public transportation;
  • Forced the Rishon Le Tzion library in 2018 to stop having separate hours for religious and secular Israelis;
  • Led the Progressive Movement's landmark victory in the Supreme Court of Israel in the case known as the Rabbi Miri Gold Suit, which resulted in the court compelling the government of Israel to pay salaries to non-Orthodox rabbis who function in regional councils.

Orly Erez Likhovski will speak in Melbourne from 10-14 March, and in Sydney from 15-19 March; details will be shared soon!
