Event Details

Like Canada, Israel is a democratic state, committed to human dignity and freedom. Israel is also a Jewish state, tied with roots in a distinct tradition.

 

How do Jewish values strengthen democracy today? Where is there tension? 

 

As a vibrant and dynamic society, Israel is grappling with this duality everywhere: women in the public sphere, haredim entering the military, issues of citizenship and immigration, respect for the rights of the other. 

 

Come join us for a discussion featuring  Mira Sucharov/Reporter, Haaretz and Open Zion and Dan Avnon/Professor and Social Activist, Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
