“Kafka himself couldn’t have made this up,” says Modern Orthodox Rabbi Dr. Seth (Shaul) Farber, the founding director of ITIM, an organization that helps Israelis and/or Jews navigate Israel’s substantial religious bureaucracy.

In opposition to Israel’s Orthodox establishment, Rabbi Farber strongly supports civil marriage; Jewish life, he says, is essential for the future of the State of Israel, and alienating people from it may be disastrous in the long term.
