Kolech-Religious Women’s Forum is the first Orthodox Jewish feminist organization in Israel.  Kolech aims to increase public awareness and bring about change in Israeli religious society by:  disseminating the values of gender equality and mutual respect between men and women; encouraging equal opportunities for women in the public arena; initiating equal opportunity legislation that benefits all Jewish women in Israel; advancing women's rights and women’s leadership in religious and halachic (Jewish legal) spheres; encouraging greater equality for women in matters of personal status, such as marriage and divorce; and engaging in an uncompromising battle against all forms of gender violence
