The Celebrate Israel Festival on May 31 at Pier 94, slated to be the largest gathering to date of Israeli-Americans in New York.
An Israeli gay couple married 10 months ago in New York has asked an Israeli family court to validate a spousal support agreement.
Elad Aflalo Farber and Roni Farber Aflalo on Sunday asked the Ramat Gan Family Court to recognize their agreement — the first time a legally married gay couple has done so, according to Haaretz. Previous recognitions of same-sex spousal support agreements involved common-law spouses.
The couple registered their marriage with the Population, Immigration and Border Authority, as they are entitled to based on an Israeli Supreme Court ruling. After they were married, they signed the agreement, which according to Israeli law needs to be validated by a family court.
