Kelman gives a short history of the struggle surrounding Israeli religious pluralism since the mid-1980s, when the Israel Religious Action Center was founded to promote liberal Judaism in Israel and create a more level playing field for non-Orthodox Judaism.

With nation building behind us, with most Diaspora communities living in safety and affluence, it is time to create these meeting points of safe and fruitful cross-fertilization and dialogue.”
