IN THE NEWS

‘Conversion therapy’ was at the center of the media frenzy that began this week after an interview with Education Minister Rabbi Rafi Peretz. In response to his interviewer’s question, he responded that he was in favour of therapies for youth that request help with the issue. Those with an interest exploited his remarks to drive the media storm, for electoral purposes. We asked Eliyahu Ackerman, educational psychologist, therapeutic expert and head of the B’kdusha organization to explain the issues that were referenced this week in the media.
