On October 8, 2013, C|M|LAW Clinical Professor Doron Kalir presented his work in progress on Same-Sex Marriage and Jewish Law: A Contemporary Perspective to faculty and students at Michigan State Law School. Professor Kalir’s presentation was a part of Michigan State’s LGBT History Month events. In his remarks, Kalir argued that the notion that the Jewish Bible supports only a one-man and one-woman marriage model is intellectually indefensible, and that contemporary reflection on the text must lead us to recognize a much more tolerant approach.  In addition, Professor Kalir reviewed recent developments in Israeli Law on the subject, which let the Israeli Supreme Court to de-facto recognition of same-sex marriage conducted outside Israel.
