According to Israeli law, a foreign spouse of an Israeli citizen will automatically be granted citizenship if their partner is Israeli (Israeli Nationality Law of 1952.) That is, at least in theory, regardless of their religious views: “Israel will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitant irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture” (The Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel \ 14.5.1948) However, because the Ministry of Interior is under the control of Orthodox religious Jews who have great disdain for followers of Jesus, these rights are regularly withheld. This leaves Jewish believers in Jesus in a predicament where they must spend tens of thousands on lawsuits to take the matter to the court system, simply to receive what was rightfully theirs in the first place. https://kehilanews.com/2018/09/22/wife-of-israeli-citizen-denied-citizenship-due-to-faith-in-jesus/ Last week, the Ministry of Interior invited the Stutz family to come and finally receive the Israeli identification documentation for his wife. Excited, the Stutz family went to the Ministry of Interior, only to find out that once again, their request had been rejected, and no reason was given. Humiliated and exhausted from fighting, the Stutz family have no other choice but to uproot their kids from their lives and to leave Israel and go back to Poland – the country where Jews had to escape for their lives from only some years ago.
