Israeli Gay Couple Sues To Have Canadian Marriage Recognized

A Tel Aviv gay couple wed in Canada is suing the Israeli government to have their marriage recognized. Jonathan Herland, 29, and his husband Ayal Walerauch, 26, were married in a civil ceremony in Toronto last July. Their lawyer filed suit in the Israel Supreme Court on Tuesday. It is the third such case now before the high court. In March, two other same-sex couples petitioned the High Court to have government recognize their Canadian marriages. All three cases will be heard by the court in two weeks. Source.  Malcolm Thomberry 365Gay.com, European Bureau Chief. For more information, please click here (last visited November 2, 2005, reo).
