Same-Sex Marriage in Israel: What Do Polls Say?

By    |   Saturday, 25 July 2015 03:07 PM

When it comes to same-sex marriage in Israel, a single poll isn’t enough to determine whether the Jewish state’s population is for or against it. Recent moves by Ireland and the United States to legalize gay marriage have added attention to the issue for country’s like Israel that continue to question whether marriage should only be permitted between a man and a woman.

Here are a few statistics taken from polls showing were Israelis stand on the issue.
Vote Now: Do You Approve of Gay Marriage?

A poll conducted by Israel’s Haaretz newspaper
revealed that 70 percent of Israelis support equal rights for those in the gay community. Amongst secular people, the poll found 89 percent of the population favored full equality. However, citizens who defined themselves as religious and Arabs only polled 46 percent in favor of supporting equal rights in the gay community. According to the study, support for equal rights for same-sex couples was more favorable among women than men.

A survey published by Smith Research Institute found that that 60 percent of voters for Israel political party Habayit Hayehundi, support marriages for same- sex couples, according to Haaretz.

In another poll conducted by Harretz, 82 percent of Israelis said they would hire a gay employee if they were an employer, however 59 percent of Israelis said they would support legal recognition of same-sex marriage.

When it came to Israeli’s stance on holding gay pride parades anywhere in Israel, 34 percent supported the idea, with the majority of the population agreeing to restrictions on parade locations or no parades at all.
