Jerusalem, Israel

A federal court in Canada refused an appeal from an individual with a kippah who wanted his passport to list his place of birth as “Jerusalem, Israel,” because the court claimed the city’s status is a matter of dispute.
An Israeli-born Jew living in Toronto appealed to a federal court last year to change his passport to identify his place of birth as “Jerusalem, Israel” , basing his argument on the point that Judaism identifies the capital of Israel as Jerusalem. The federal court reached a decision over the weekend that rejected the appeal claiming that the capital city’s status is disputed.
B’nai Brith, a Jewish organization, supported the appeal in a statement issued that called the court’s decision a disappointing one that will discriminate against Jerusalem-born Jews.
Frank Dimant, the Deputy President of the Organization, said talks will be held with officials of the newly elected conservative government over this issue.
