“The opinion of the overwhelming majority of the public is clear. They support equality for the LGBTQ community in general, and particularly on issues of personal status and surrogacy,” said Hiddush CEO Rabbi Uri Regev, whose organization commissioned the study . “Equally important is the fact that it enjoys a high level of support from all voters for all parties that are about to form the new government coalition [as well as Likud voters].

“If the Israeli government continues to discriminate against the LGBTQ community, it will betray not only the values ​​of democracy and equality, but also its own constituents,” he added. “It is high time Israel got a government that keeps the Declaration of Independence promise for freedom of religion and equal rights for all.”

Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance CEO Alon Shachar said, “The survey results are consistent with a feeling that Israeli society supports equality in the LGBTQ community. But decision-makers seem to be acting in ways that do not reflect the will of their constituents and are directly damaging the LGBTQ community.

“We feel this when it comes to politics, legislation, and government budgets and allocations,” he added. “To make a real difference, we invite you to attend the upcoming Pride and Tolerance Parade in Jerusalem. Join us to promote equality.”
