Tel Aviv overtook Modiin as the Israeli city with the most freedom for its residents in 2019, according to the Municipal Freedom Index compiled by Israel Hofsheet – Be Free Israel, a grassroots movement that strives for cultural and religious pluralism in Israel. The index examines 24 cities nationwide in a number of spheres, including availability of public transportation on the Sabbath, gender segregation at public events and swimming hours at pools; and the extent of the involvement of religious organizations in public education institutions. KAN reporter Naomi Segal spoke with Israel Hofsheet executive director Uri Keidar about the index and its significance at both the local and national levels.
