Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat told a conference of north American Reform Rabbis meeting in Jerusalem on Tuesday that it was critical to find the common denominator among all streams of Judaism. "In order to strengthen Jerusalem, we must continue to focus on the common denominator," Barkat said in his address to the delegation at Jerusalem's Hebrew Union College. He stressed the importance of pluralism, noted that "it is not always simple," and cited his decision to create a wall-to-wall coalition in the city council with religious, secular and haredi city councilors.
