Founded in 2002, ITIM works to build a Jewish and democratic Israel where all Jews can lead full Jewish lives. ITIM is committed to helping people participate in Jewish life in Israel and improving government policies to make Jewish life passages more inclusive, including marriage, divorce, conversion, and burial. ITIM tackles the complex issues of religion and state from both an individual and systemic perspective. The ITIM Assistance Center, on a pro bono basis, assists thousands of individuals each year to successfully navigate Israel’s religious bureaucracy. The ITIM Giyur K’Halacha Conversion Court Network offers Israeli citizens an inclusive, supportive Orthodox conversion process. On the systemic level, ITIM’s Public Policy and Legal Centers promote statutory, regulatory, and judicial change that ensures the rights of all to live as Jews in the most pluralistic yet halachic way possible.
