VIDEO: A Motherly Hug in Israel


The Jerusalem Institute of Justice (JIJ) legal department exists with a focus on protecting civil rights and religious freedom under the Israeli Basic law which guarantees it to each citizen of Israel. Our team has successfully handled over 750 cases dealing with issues like family unification, affirmative action, and tax exemptions.

JIJ’s legal team helps us pursue justice and religious freedom and advance civil rights for all residents of Israel.

JIJ strongly believes that the state of Israel is the sole homeland for the Jewish people, but at the same time, that it is critically important for us to ensure that minority ethnic and religious groups in Israel receive the equal treatment described in Israel’s declaration of independence.
