Tzohar’s mission reaching Asia E-mail

Last month saw a return visit of Tzohar representative Adam Segal, International Resource Development Manager to Hong Kong. Segal is working to raise the profile of Tzohar across Asia, reaching out to community members who are not familiar with the Israeli organisation, its important pivotal role and the services it provides voluntarily.

Founded in 1995, Tzohar is an Israeli national religious and zionist rabbinical organisation dedicated to securing the Jewish future of the State of Israel by promoting initiatives and programmes focused on Jewish identity and national unity. It is a household name across Israel, attracting thousands of secular Israelis who turn to it in particular to conduct marriages and other life-cycle events.

He met with Jewish Times Asia to chat about the organisation and how it goes about uniting a Jewish Israel. When asked why so many secular Israelis turn to Tzohar, he explained that the attraction is its very warm, personal and non-judgmental approach to people. “With almost 10,000 couples opting for a civil wedding overseas to avoid a Jewish wedding, Tzohar realises the need to engage secular Israel in a very positive way.”

Tzohar is an independent organisation guided by halacha (Jewish law). Its projects, including weddings, are recognised by the Rabbinate, as is required by Israeli law. This provides couples with the very real option of having a wedding with a Rabbi and a bridal teacher who take the time to get to know each couple and create an experience that is meaningful for them.
