The couple immigrated to Israel two weeks ago, and while the Jewish spouse received an ID card and immigrant certificate, his non-Jewish spouse received a temporary resident status. This is contrary to the provisions of the Law of Return, which stipulate that the rights are granted to both the Jew and his partner.
