      Expert: Update Inheritance Laws to Match Technology

      Attorney Chaim Katz, an expert in the fields of wills and inheritance, asked Chairman David Rotem of the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee to advance reform in inheritance law. In a letter to Member of Knesset Rotem, Dr. Katz said the law must keep in step with such technological advances as in vitro fertilization and the freezing of sperm cells and human eggs, which are not addressed under Israeli inheritance law.

      Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, Katz said there are more than 50 bills for urgent changes in inheritance law.
