Delegates to World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem spar over votes

Delegates at the World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem are sparring over votes on resolutions that were expected to pass easily.

According to those in attendance, electronic voting was expected to take place on a range of resolutions, including support for LGBTQ Jews, backing the current version of the Law of Return, and recognition of Reform and Conservative conversions. Instead, right-wing delegations to the WZC have sought to push for voting individually on each resolution to delay their adoption, potentially forcing delegates to stay late into the night.

Separately, some delegates to the WZC marched earlier this morning from the Jerusalem International Convention Center to the Supreme Court in order to express solidarity with the anti-overhaul marchers who have been protesting across the country for several months.
