Most Israeli Jews support increased Jewish pluralism in Israel, and are in favor of the right to freedom of marriage, a survey released on Sunday found.

The poll, published by The Jewish People Policy Institute, found that more than 60 percent of Israeli Jews back the legalization of civil marriages in the country.

Over 80% said that Israeli Jews who identify as traditional, Orthodox and secular are all “equally good Jews,” and 56% of respondents said the government should be “much more considerate” of the views of minority groups.
